The Second-Most Overrated Film of 2004

Curious after its victory in the Take Six Village Voice critics poll, I watched “Before Sunset” last night. And while I generally liked the film, found it entertaining, and consider myself a fan of director Richard Linklater, how anyone –much less a plurality of critics- could call it the best movie of the year is absolutely unfathomable to me. I’d say there’s more truth to be found about the nature of romance and heartbreak in any one of the DVD chapters of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” than there is in all 80 minutes of “Before Sunset.”

I'd recommend Finding Neverland as well
