Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film Before Midnight

One of the key differences between what Linklater's been doing with these and Rohmer is that Rohmer always has a very acute sense of place that isn't beholden to visual cliches about a region. Even though we delve deeply into the emotional lives of C+J, we only get a superficial and touristy sense of the Peloponnese. But the last half hour is a tour-de-fuggin-force, so me and Ricky Links be cool, still.
