Episode notes

Before Midnight

A monumental episode. As you know we’ve been discussing the “Before Trilogy,” written and directed by the wonderful Richard Linklater. And this week we are so lucky to be joined by the man himself – Richard Linklater. He chats with Ify, Drea, and Alonso about the inspiration behind Before Sunrise, working with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, and what he’s been doing to kill time during quarantine. Plus, he expresses his feelings about the possibility of making another “Before” film and why he considers Before Midnight a bit of a horror movie. We also do a thorough examination of the previously stated Before Midnight. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’
