not seen any others
that's really good as well
Lovefilm are sending me Before Sunrise today. I've been told it's the smuggest film ever, so I look forward to that.
(I accidentally ordered Before Sunset last week, thinking it was the first one, so just sent it straight back. D'oh!)
She turned it off in a huff after about 10 minutes because I kept sniggering. Still haven't actually seen it.
It all just seems horrendously contrived and bullshit.
But Sunrise has it's charms, despite the 'characters' who drop in and out of the film. The main characters are meant to be gauche, lacking in self-awareness and pretentious - they're practically kids for goodness' sake.
3) Dazed & Confused - got your first shot at the bigtime? Best spend half the budget on a kickass soundtrack.
2) A Scanner Darkly - after Life Of Pi, Crash, Naked Lunch et all, do books still get described as 'unfilmable'? This adaptation goes to show that CGI is not the solution to all problems. Even Keanu is passable.
1) Before Sunset - as guntrip hints at above, Before Sunrise could certainly be considered a little 'smug'. The older, wiser characters of Before Sunset are far more likeable. I love them so much I wish they were a couple in real life :(
i've been meaning to watch them for years and i actually forgot
...watch Before Sunrise and then take as long a break as you can before watching Before Sunset. They weren't designed to be watched back to back, and there was 10 years between the two films being released. I reckon it improves your enjoyment having an enforced gap between them.
i'll give it a whirl. thanks.
And report back...
few years after it came out in the late 90s. Like many people I wasn't expecting a sequel. Before Sunset is certainly very good and is a good film of characters in their late 30s/early 40s looking back at their youth; a bit like Clerks 2.
This year I decided to dedicate each month to a different director/actor.
This month Christopher Walken, next month Richard Linklater.
the ages 15-21.
2) Before Sunset - So much love for this film and the last scene is just great.
3) Waking Life - beautifully done existential rotomotion.
I didn't realize that this was out. I was just Googling Linklater films.
1) Before Sunrise/set
2) Dazed & Confuzed
3) Waking Life
dunno how it fits into a ranking tho
2. Before Sunset
3. Dazed & Confused
School of Rock is the best obviously, and I liked Dazed & Confused and A Scanner Darkly. I HATED Before Sunrise and wanted to punch everyone involved in it. So mimsy and self-indulgent and boring.
