A Movie Review: "Before Sunset". I am still reeling from "Before Sunset", a well-crafted, exceedingly attractive post-modern romance that takes place in Paris (of course) in almost real time. The movie consists mainly of a very intense conversation between two erstwhile lovers who rediscover each other after nearly a decade and take a walk together. The ending is perfect, and I laughed out loud: not because it was comical but because it was a great and wonderful relief from all of the tension that the movie's eighty minutes had so unexpectedly built up within me.

This has to be the date movie of the year, if not the decade.

Someday, I will sort out the moral implications of it (they really aren't that hard), but that's for another post. Right now, I am still enjoying "the moment". (Forgive me, Lord.)
