Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, why the hell do you make such an enchanting on-screen couple?! Here it is almost two decades after Richard Linklater directed Before Sunrise, the first film to introduce our hopeless lovers Jesse and Celine, and almost a full decade after we re-visited Jesse and Celine for a romantic French encounter in Before Sunset, yet Linklater is still finding a market for his latest story about Jesse and Celine – Before Midnight. You don’t see many romantic dramas being franchised these days, but Linklater has found something astonishingly special with his Before franchise.
After all the passion and turmoil has settled from Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, Linklater’s newest film meets Jesse (Hawke) and Celine (Delpy) after spending some nine years together as a couple, raising their two beautiful daughters Ella (Jennifer Prior) and Nina (Charlotte Prior). We first catch up with only Jesse though »

Richard Linklater is one of the more versatile filmmakers working today. He very much marches to the beat of his own drummer, and his filmography is littered with varied and fascinating projects like Waking Life, School of Rock, Dazed and Confused, and last year’s terrific Bernie. Now, as Before Midnight—the wonderful and moving sequel to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset—is poised to open in limited release this weekend, Linklater has revealed that the Criterion Collection version of his breakthrough 1991 film Slacker will be released on Blu-ray. Linklater broke the news while talking to Steve in anticipation of the release of Before Midnight, and the filmmaker also discussed his desire to do a Blu-ray box set of all three Before movies at some point with some new extras. Hit the jump to read on. While Slacker was previously released on DVD by the Criterion Collection, Linklater said he »

Nine years after their first meeting we meet Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) once again, this time in Paris in Before Sunset, the follow-up to 1995's Before Sunrise. This time the script was co-written by director Richard Linklater and his two stars and it's truly one of the best films I've ever seen. When we last left Celine and Jesse it was at a train station in Vienna in June of 1995 and a promise to meet again six months later in that very location. Nine years have passed and the meeting never took place. Jesse is now married with a child and an accomplished author, with a book he's written entirely based on his night with Celine. His book tour has brought him to Paris and, seeing he was going to be in town, Celine decides to stop by, rekindling the flame that was first lit nine years »

This week brings the closing chapters of one of the rarest things in cinema -- a consistently strong trilogy -- in the shape of the latest installment of one of the most beloved series in recent memory. Not "The Hangover," but "Before Midnight," the closing (?) chapter to Richard Linklater's tale of romance. While it's bittersweet, we're also hopeful that one other perfect trilogy will be coming along before summer's out, in the shape of Edgar Wright & Simon Pegg's Cornetto trilogy, begun with "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz." A new trailer for the third installment "The World's End" is coming tomorrow, but just arriving before that is a new British quad poster, which highlights some of the supporting cast, including Rosamund Pike, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan. Check it out above. In other poster news, there's a new one for Woody Allen's fourty-ninth movie, »

Most sequels are born of financial consequence, Hollywood studio calculation/desperation, movie star/producer hubris, or some combination thereof. That’s certainly not the case with “Before Midnight,” which again, like its predecessor, ranks as one of the more charming, and unlikely, cinematic follow-ups of the modern era. In 1995′s “Before Sunrise,” director Richard Linklater cast Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as Jesse and Celine, a pair of young kids who cross paths on a European train and decide to kill 14 hours in Vienna before the former is due to catch a plane back home. He’s American, she’s French, and their cross-cultural, philosophically-tinged, flirty back-and-forth served as a heady cinematic stand-in for [ Read More ]
In 1995, Richard Linklater and Kim Krizan's screenplay for Before Sunrise came to life with Ethan Hawke playing Jesse, a young American in Europe who just happens across Celine (Julie Delpy) on a train bound for Vienna. A German couple arguing on the train gives the two enough reason to begin a conversation and now, 28 years later, it's time to take a look back at how the couple we first met in 1995, and would meet again in 2004's Before Sunset, got to where they are in life and on a family trip in Greece in 2013's Before Midnight. Below is an interactive Google Map that pinpoints all the locations from the film, accompanied by images from the film, information on some of the locations and a few clips here and there. This is the first in a trio of maps I will be featuring this week. Tomorrow we'll follow Celine »

Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite. In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments. "Cinéma, de notre temps: James Benning and Richard Linklater" Tweetable Logline: A doc portrait of a friendship / a visual essay that sets out to find connections between the work & lives of two American visionaries. Elevator Pitch: In 1985, Richard Linklater began a film screening society in Austin, Texas, that aimed to show classic films to a budding community of cinephiles. Eventually incorporating as a nonprofit, the newly branded Austin Film Society raised enough money to fly in their first out-of-town invitee: filmmaker James Benning. Starting in the ’60s, Benning had been creating non-narrative films largely on his own, while Linklater had just begun to craft his first 8mm shorts. »
Here's the latest Austin film news.
The New York Times profiled the Austin film scene in Sunday's edition and interviewed locally based industry heavy hitters like Richard Linklater, Elizabeth Avellan, Bryan Poyser (Elizabeth's interview) and Andrew Bujalski (Jordan's interview), among others. Worth a look for the photos alone.Speaking of Linklater, he has now filed suit against his insurance company, alleging breach of contract, The Austin Chronicle reports. His Paige, Texas property, near Bastrop, which housed scripts, production materials, publicity information, among other movie memorabilia, was damaged in 2011's wildfires. More more Linklater: Filmmaker Gabe Klinger has created a Kickstarter campaign for his documentary about the Austin filmmaker and director James Benning, according to Filmmaker Magazine. The project will only be funded if at least $25,000 is pledged by June 8. More than $8,000 has been raised so far. More than 65 research fellowships have been awarded by The University of Texas Harry Ransom »

While we wait for various summer movie series to begin, Austin still has lots of interesting alternative film choices this week. And of course the summer blockbusters have begun and you already have your choice of the new movie with the Star Trek gang or the movie that released last week (and therefore is practically ancient) with the man in the iron suit.
Tickets are still available through the Austin Film Society website for Sunday's triple-feature of Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and the sneak peek of Before Midnight, with director Richard Linklater in attendance after the first movie.
On Tuesday, Violet Crown Cinema presents Holiday Road, a comedy in which 13 filmmakers each devote a short film to a different American holiday. Ut alum Todd Berger tackled January and October, and Austin's own Kelly Williams was a producer for this anthology.

A new clip has been released for Richard Linklater's Before Midnight. The new film takes place 18 years after Before Sunrise and 9 years after Before Sunset, and sees Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) navigating married life on a trip to Greece. In the new clip, Celine and Jesse continue to examine their relationship, and you can see the easy-going shorthand between the two characters. However, if you're looking at this clip and the previous clip, and you're uneasy about two people just walking and talking, then this movie (and the previous two) may not be for you. For everyone else, Before Midnight that's absolutely worth your time (click here for my full review from Sundance). Just be sure to see the first two before coming to the latest installment. Hit the jump to check out the clip and to find out when the movie is playing near you. »

In just about a week, audiences will get to witness the return of Jesse and Celine, as the next in Richard Linklater‘s Before series, Before Midnight, finally lands in theaters. Following a fairly spoilery trailer, the clips released thus far have mostly been in the safe territory, revealing out-of-context dialogue between Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke. Today another has landed, [...] »

Reuniting its leads Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy for a third entry, Richard Linklater's “Before Midnight” is by no means a simple cash grab, but a logical, emotional step to its central romance. The film's couple have navigated their feelings from Vienna, Paris, and now Greece, and a new clip released shows their comfort with one another, but also their tiny annoyances. We've already glimpsed Hawke's character Jesse sidestep around Delpy's interest in his attraction toward her character Celine as they've aged, and in this latest clip (via Rope of Silicon) we witness the actor wriggle some more as she wonders what he'd change about her. The scene crackles with the excellent chemistry that Delpy and Hawke have shared since “Before Sunrise” nearly two decades prior now, and to the short clip's credit, you're sucked back into the duo's lives immediately. Luckily, you'll soon be able to see the entirety of their latest chapter, »

Check out this new clip from Richard Linklater's brilliant "Before Midnight" (May 24), in which long-term partners Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke), graced with a few moments alone away from their children, get to discuss their relationship dynamics while strolling through a small town in Greece. "Sometimes I feel like I'm breathing oxygen and you're breathing helium," Celine snarks at Jesse. Watch below."Before Midnight" is the third installment in Linklater's romance trilogy starring Delpy and Hawke as a pair of loquacious lovers who, over the course of 18 years, meet, part and then come together again to, for better or worse, form a family. The film rightfully received raves out of its Sundance premiere; despite (or due to) the nine-year gaps between films, the quality of the series and its attention to realistic demands in relationships remains top-notch. Linklater, Delpy and Hawke, who receive co-writing credit for the »

Before Midnight may be the greatest film ever made about impermanence -- a fitting theme for a work that also reestablishes the A-list credentials of the mutable Ethan Hawke. Much like his character in Richard Linklater's romantic drama series -- which, in its third iteration, finds Hawke's Jesse and paramour Celine (Julie Delpy) struggling with fortydom while on vacation with their kids in Greece -- Hawke has finally, definitively distanced himself from the youthful persona that first defined him. That hasn't been an easy transition, given how forcefully he's commanded the spotlight over nearly 30 years as a precocious child (Explorers), then a sweet, soulful »

Movie trilogies today are normally reserved for Hollywood's big blockbusters, like superhero films ("Iron Man") or bombastic comedies ("The Hangover") that appeal to a wide audience. Director Richard Linklater's "Before" series is the exception to that rule. The films -- "Before Sunrise," "Before Sunset," and now, "Before Midnight" -- star Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as Jesse and Celine, two strangers who meet on a train to Vienna and fall in love. Each film is filled with loose dialogue and uninterrupted shots, making the conversations between Jesse and Celine feel very real, so much so that since the first movie was released in 1995, fans of the series approach both Delpy and Hawke believing that they are their characters (the fact that the two stars have writing credits on each film only adds to that belief). "Midnight," which hits theaters this weekend, will do little to dispel that notion, as »
