    Before Sunrise


    “So, think of this as time travel from then, to now, to find out what you’re missing out on,” says Ethan Hawke’s Jesse, young and exuberant in the opening of Richard Linklater’s seminal romantic masterpiece, Before Sunrise.

Lynch has proved he’s still got it (where it counts, buddy) and he is still able to shake an audience to their core. I’m still stunned from the finale.
