BEFORE MIDNIGHT Movie Review




What makes a great film? That’s the multimillion dollar question. Most industry insiders would probably say that there are many answers to this question. Simply put, I believe critics have spent decades asking it, while general audiences pretty much know the answer to it. The answer, in my humble opinion, is that it is exceedingly difficult to articulate in words. And when you are witness to the collective art of the final product (the film), you as an audience member will detect those nuances that make or break a film. It’s a feeling you get and sometimes those feelings derive from nuances that are so subtle that it can be as simple as the dialog and chemistry between two characters or even simpler: the overall inexplicable way the film moves you. Besides, I would go as far as to say that it is probably easier to identify what makes a great actor, or director, or writer, than it is to articulate what makes a great film, from a critical stand-point. And I can name any number of movies I consider “great” off the top of my head, as well as most of you can for reasons generally unique to our own perspectives.

Well, Before Midnight is such a movie that has that thing about it. That thing that lets one ponder other’s views of couples and relationships and their trials and tribulations as well as, the aging process and that which comes with the longevity of family and commitment. But, before I go any further and in the interest of full disclosure, I have to admit that I’ve not seen the previous two parts to this very interesting romantic saga.
