Loved the first two films... Posted by: from: Muskegon Mi on Don't start here. Go back and watch the first two films. And be prepared to stay focused. Put the kids to bed. Turn off the cell phone and the lights. I fell in love with Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise" way back in 1995 at a local Cineplex. The stroll in Vienna, and conversation contained within during that walk reminded me of part I loved of my college years. I didn't expect or see the 2004 follow-up, "Before Sunset," until it hit DVD. Again, I didn't anticipate the release of "Before Midnight." In both cases, the director and cast delivered fantastic films. We can all debate how we'd like the story of Jesse and Céline to progress. These films are simply a day in the life, and this approach to filmmaking seems to set Linklater apart from so many of his modern-day peers. Check out his second film, "Dazed and Confused" for another example of "a day in the life." He's taken it to the next level with his latest, "Boyhood," certainly a strong candidate for Oscar consideration this year, and another great film. While I have no idea if there will be another entry to the "Midnight" series, I do hope so. I've enjoyed, and revisited these films multiple times in the past. I hope you will as well.

A truly one-of-a-kind rarity Posted by: from: California on When I first heard of "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset", I had never come across a single film that completely focused on a series of conversations between two individuals. I was fascinated by the concept after learning about the structure of those two films, though I was concerned that they might turn out to be boring. Ultimately, I sufficiently enjoyed "Sunrise" even if I was not head-over-heels for it. I enjoyed "Sunset" more than I did for "Sunrise", though I also was not absolutely crazy for this one either. After watching "Before Midnight", I was completely blown away. This is hands down the best one of the three. Although the atmosphere and general characteristics are undeniably consistent throughout all three films, something about the third one worked best. The dialogue in "Midnight" is engaging and often enlightening. All conversations are nothing short of thoughtful, and the ideas and words shared from one character to another all feel genuine and truthful, if at times painful. I certainly hope that Linklater, Hawke, and Delpy all choose to continue this saga for a few more decades, even if it takes them 9 years to do each one. A spectacular gem that undoubtedly deserved more nominations from the Golden Globes or Oscars.

Solid and satisfying finish to a great story Posted by: from: Pacific NW on Solid finish to the Richard Linklater "Before" series. This is a very satisfying conclusion to the story of Jesse and Celine. In a series of movies, especially one like this that walks the well-trodden path of couples relationships, it's easy to become self-indulgent and campy. This trilogy manages to tell a very believable and touching story of exploration and trust, hope and disappointment and the difficulty of just trying to be with someone. Before Midnight finishes this story in a way that brings satisfying closure without stroking it with an unrealistic Disney ending. Very much enjoyed the ride.

A great threequel Posted by: from: Los Angeles, CA on Jesse + Celine forever. Since first meeting them on a train in Vienna, I have loved watching them together in small windows of time in 9-year spurts. This film was a very realistic portrayal of a long-term relationship and is possibly the best of the three films so far. The starry-eyed twenty-somethings are grown up and some of the electricity is gone, but the spark is still there. I can't wait to see them again in another 9 years.

A Very Real and Profound Posted by: from: San Antonio, TX on Concluding the story that began with Before Sunrise and was continued in Before Sunset, Richard Linklater's Before Midnight offers an uncharacteristically honest portrayal of a long running relationship. Ethan Hawke best summed up Linklater's trilogy by saying that Before Sunrise is a film about what might be, Before Sunset is a film about what could or should be, and Before Midnight as a film about what is. The storybook romance has long since passed between Celine (Deply) and Jesse (Hawke) leaving the trials and strains of day to day living to test the extraordinary romance built in the previous two films. Entirely dialog driven, Before Midnight's kicks off with Jesse bidding his son from his previous marriage farewell after staying the summer with him and Celine. A long bittersweet farewell kicks off a series of events that threatens to crush Jesse and Celine's marriage. The film brilliantly takes the innocent musings of Jesse and lets them slowly build into a very real and, at times, ugly conflict. Both characters are sympathetic in their own way, Jesse wants to ensure he is involved with his son and Celine wants to maintain the career that she has worked so hard to build. The film is entirely dialog driven so those who require action will find the musings of the characters tedious. Linklater's camera captures the beauty of Greece while his characters tick away like time bombs and this blu ray offers an impeccable image and sound. Extras are substantial in quality but quantity is limited. This is truly one of 2013's best and possibly most overlooked films.

Sublime third part of Linklater's trilogy! Posted by: from: Southern New Jersey on Great American auteur director Richard Linklater, who gave us Dazed and Confused, School of Rock, and Slacker, among others, gives us his third part of the "Before" trilogy. Following Before Sunset and Before Midnight, Before Sunrise continues the story of a couple's growing and changing relationship. A truly, wonderful film experience!

A Fantastic Ending to a Fantastic Trilogy Posted by: from: Michigan on Before Midnight concludes Richard Linklater's trilogy in splendid fashion. It's a shame that the other two films aren't available on bluray, but this will have to do for now.

Just amazing. This is why I love the movies. Posted by: from: ohio on Such a true romantic film. I just love this trilogy so much. My heart is in a little puddle in the room after I watched all of these movies. It honestly dosn't feel like a movie, and that's just amazing to me.

Perfect Posted by: from: on I'm typically not a romantic-movie type of guy, but I got sucked in with Before Sunrise when it was in theatres. Two sequels later and the series still has all of its magic.
