My love for Before films is not hidden from anyone. In my opinion, they are the greatest movie trilogy that cinema has ever seen (yes, I am aware of The Godfather trilogy). What makes Before films so great is that each of the three films apart from being romantic, funny, enlightening and heart wrenching, are about us and who we are: Love seeking and insecure, figuring out all our lives whether what we did, the choices we made, the paths we relinquished, were they right or not.
The massive success of Before Sunrise and Before Sunset — especially among true cinephiles — gave rise to a kind of new movie genre: walk-and-talk. And in the last few years, there have been several films made where two characters just walk around a city over the course of a day or night and have revealing conversations. Not all of them are good, but some of them are actually more than watchable. In fact, I am sure you are going to like the below listed films similar to the Before trilogy — Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight. You can watch some of these movies like Before Sunrise on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
7. Before We Go
A woman misses the 1:30 train from New York to Boston and a street musician spends the night trying to help her make it back home before her husband does. Throughout the night they learn a lot about one another and eventually find a romance. ‘Before We Go’ has its flaws — primarily that Chris Evans, the director-cum-actor, tries to stuff a lot for a film that’s just one night long — but it has its charming moments too. Overall, you will enjoy the film if you like the Before trilogy.
