Before Sunset ★★★★★

small detail that i noted after watching it twice in a row, the writing perfectly expresses that feeling of wanting to tell someone you haven't seen in awhile EVERYTHING. how do you fit "catching up" in a simple conversation while walking around, especially after nine years? the dialogue is mixed with the perfectly-acted awkward moments and physical gestures between lines. the interrupting each other, the holding back, its all part of such a specific yet relatable experience that many recognize in this film but aren't;t able to point their finger to it.
