Humanistic
9 June 2016 | by nicolechan916See all my reviews

The word to describe this movie is, 'humanistic'. It isn't your typical Hollywood movie, and though doesn't have the feel of an indie film, it is somewhat in between the two. Before We Go is a film about raw human emotions and behavior. It explores the lives of two strangers as they connect with each other on a individual level.

While it can be boring for those who are used to scenes of action after action, I found it reasonably enjoyable. As the film goes on, the characters' backgrounds are slowly revealed and we learn more about them. For me, the movie does not really excite or get me on the edge of my seat wondering what will happen next, or what happened before. Rather, it made me live in the moment of the movie. I was going through the night with the characters, much like how you can't rush life.

Evans does a great job as the charming, helpful, lost soul who wishes to escape his life by wasting time. On the other hand, it took awhile for me to warm up to Eve's character. Eve's acting felt a little awkward initially, and the chemistry between the two felt a bit off. But as the movie went on, it gets better, and that could reflect how connections are made in real life.

Overall, a charming movie with a intricate perspective on life and love.
