2013 #18: BEFORE MIDNIGHT
A perfect and logical conclusion to a wonderful trilogy of impossibly romantic films centering on heart-break and ultimate friendship, the creative team of Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, and Richard Linklater (who has fast become one of my favorite filmmakers) score big with Before Midnight. Some of the best dialogue of the year, especially during that marvelous outdoor dinner sequence. The joke is -- as complete as this series feels -- I'd love to see them do another movie in 5-10 years!
