Before Sunset and The Hottest State
Here's a scene from Before Sunset, one of my favorite films and highly underrated. Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke cowrote the film with director Richard Linklater.
It's interesting to see Ethan's growth of a filmmaker with his new film The Hottest State. I find his writing (in this and Before Sunset) to be emotional and personal. It's introspection one does not see often in films (at least not done well or interestingly). I can't help but to imagine him going deep into his life and extracting material for his writings. His new film is worth watching.
