Before Midnight is director Richard Linklater’s latest installment in his Before series starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. If you’ve already seen Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, then you already know and love these characters. In fact, you’ve probably been counting down the days till you get to see the next snapshot of their lives. And if you’re part of the Lara and the Reel Boy, you’re excited to see what Ethan Hawke’s facial hair looks like too. And if you’re one particular part of Lara and the Reel Boy, you got to see that up close and personal.
As was previously mentioned, David and Lara were both extremely busy with the SXSW Film Festival this year, and both saw a ridiculous amount of movies despite (or perhaps because of) that. Well, here is your chance to find out what the best films they saw were. You will know which movies you need to keep a watchful eye out for, and your curiosity can finally be satisfied. They didn’t see all of the same films, so their lists will be different for that reason, in addition to the fact that they generally disagree on most things.
One final note, neither David nor Lara saw Spring Breakers at the festival. So, don’t take the fact that its missing from this list as a criticism. We will definitely be talking about it in the near future.
Here we are. It’s been almost a year since anything was posted here. Honestly, we had pretty much given up on it. We’re both busy, have jobs, things we like to do. But eventually we reached a conclusion. We both love film. It’s always going to be a hugely important part of both of our lives. And this is something fairly simple we can do to share that.
So, here we are. We are back with a slightly different looking site. We have several new writers on board (check out the About page!). We have some new subjects we’re going to be covering. You’ll probably get to read about more television and written materials than you used to. But we promise it will be wonderful.
This just seemed appropriate.
In preparing for this day, we asked what the best way to relaunch the site would be. And the answer was fairly obvious. A Top Five List. These are not reviews, just ramblings. But they are our favorite films since almost a year ago. So, without further ado, here are The Top Five Films Since We Stopped Posting On This Here Blog.
