"You are the mayor of crazy town, do you know that?"
Back in 1995, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy appeared in Before Sunrise as two strangers who meet on a train and spend a romantic day together in Vienna, Austria, talking, drinking and falling in love. Nine years later, Before Sunset brought the characters back together for another round of will-they-or-won't-they romance, ending with yet another uncertain note, leaving audiences to wonder if Hawke's Jesse boarded his plane or stayed in Paris with Delpy's Celine.
Yet another nine years later, audiences can catch up with Jesse and Celine in Before Midnight, which finds the couple married at last, but by no means are the two finding married life easy. The movie's first trailer sees the couple travel through the Greek coastline and still questioning whether their love will last. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.29.13 by Ryan
"The one thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough is love." — Henry Miller
Today is Valentine's Day and love is in the air. And we're not talking about platonic love or brotherly love, tough love or self-love, but romantic love — the real hearts-and-flowers, butterlies-in-your-stomach type of love that sets your soul on fire and makes you feel like you're walking on air. Scientists may say that the euphoria we feel when we are in the embrace of romantic love is merely a chemical response with evolutionary advantages, but anyone who has truly experienced it knows that it feels far more like magic than science. Though romantic love is nearly impossible to define or describe to others, great filmmakers are often capable of capturing just enough of that magic feeling that we recognize it in their films and respond to it with our sighs and our laughs and our tears. Light a few candles, pour a couple glasses of wine or sparkling cider and help us select the most romantic movies of the past twenty years.

When Before Sunrise was released in 1995, it enjoyed a modest success in theaters that grew when it was released on video and DVD and ultimately inspired a sequel, Before Sunset, in 2004. Sunset enjoyed larger box-office success, prompting even more sequel talk. Ethan Hawke told Collider that after making Sunset "there was not a doubt in the three of our minds [Hawke, co-star Julie Delpy, and co-writer/director Richard Linklater] that we would do it again" and discussed what it would take to make a third movie.
The success of the second film has made it a little difficult to see our way around how to do it. Because the first time we revisited it there was no expectation. I remember when it first came out that Before Sunset was going to be released, I remember reading some article "They must believe in themselves because why would they?" I mean there was no expectation on it. And now every time I go out to dinner with friends, "I've got an idea. What if it opens and she's having a baby and...." So it would be very difficult for us to exactly know how to.
Hawke believes what will help in making another Before is time.
When we first finished Before Sunset there was an idea that we would do ... Julie and I wanted to do a short film the next year that we thought would be really fun to do like a five minute short and then put it in the vault so to speak and then fifteen years later make another film that had ... but time is such a big part of that movie. How time affects people and how we change. But my thought is we will make one as soon as everybody has forgotten about it. Rick [Linklater] is going to ... it'll probably take Rick to see a window that will want him to revisit these people and then he'll lasso Julie and I into talking about what's happened to us.
And what would the title of a third movie be? "Before We Go Crazy? I don't know," replied Hawke. Posted 01.05.10 by Ryan
