Annoying Film about a Bickering Couple!

Because of the great reviews, I expected a profound film that delved into the emotional life of two, long-married people struggling with children, work, and life. What a mistake! Very superficial story line, where we are tortured into seeing two people bickering through the whole film without feeling connected to why they are so bitter and arguing; except that they are.

How many writers do most of us know or people who have the time, money, and luxury to travel back and forth to Europe? I don't know about you, but I can't recall the last time I could afford a vacation or even a motel room for that matter. Conversations in the film are so contrived like the characters that no one can take either the characters or the lines they utter as realistic. Discussions on pop culture, politics, and feminism are discussed on the most superficial levels possible. For example, Celine hates her job, but argues about the importance of a woman having a job, because it's empowering? First of all, most women don't have that luxury; economically they are forced to work. Second, who argues that having a job that you feel exploited and hate is empowering? Gorbachev as an amazing statesman. Really? Wasn't he the charlatan who argued against the affordability of bread, destroyed the Soviet Union, and prostituted himself in Louis Vuitton commercials. If the writer had delved a little into politics beyond the superficial headlines maybe he would have known something about Gorbachev. The only likable scene in this whole film is at a banquet among friends. It is the only time you hear any meaningful or interesting banter and dialogue. Thanks of course to the writer ripping off lines from Bergman's film Private Confessions. My recommendation: don't rent this film unless you are a masochist.

Painfully entertaining

The first time I watched Before Sunrise I was blown away by the movie's ability to hold my attention and to express a connection as well as it did purely through dialogue. However, the second time I watched it, the characters bothered me with their pretentiousness.

This movie, I watched because I had seen the other two and although I no longer loved the two characters as I did the first time I saw it, I wanted to get some closure.

I feared they wouldn't be happy in their marriage and every time I saw it in their eyes or in her reluctance to be affectionate, my heart ached. But the bluntness of this movie and how unforgiving it is is what makes it so good. I wanted to 'put it off' as much as both characters did; that is, the confrontation of their true feeling.

Also, Delpy and Hawke are such brilliant, brilliant actors: they make these characters feel so real and make me love and relate to them but also hate them, in a great way. They make me pay attention to every detail of their physicality, facial expression and whatnot.

I just really love this movie and its nuanced brilliance that engaged me throughout it all. I really can't wait for another sequel.

Before Midnight: Hopefully the finale of an overrated series

Before Sunrise & Before Sunset were two critically acclaimed movies that I simply didn't understand. Though they were beautiful they had little substance and were essentially 90 minutes of two people's random conversations and no actually storyline.

18yrs later the third movie came out and picks up with our pair being an actual couple, at first I detected a hint of of purpose but it quickly descended into random pointless banter. The last third of the movie get's oddly dark and becomes uncomfortable viewing and then suddenly like that the credits are rolling and I'm breathing a sigh of relief.

Arguably the weakest of the three Before Midnight for me is devoid of entertainment value, the only new thing it brought to the table was the revelation that Julie Delpy has one boob considerably bigger than the other. Yep, that little tit-bit (Pun intended) was all I could take away from this mess.

What would have made this a more watchable feature is if something happened with...............anything. I'm not a guy who requires action, in fact I don't enjoy the "Action" genre but this is unforgivably dull.

Three bags of nope, a sack of awkward viewing and a box of please please don't let their be a sequel.
