Whether you dread or anticipate the unnamed third ‘Before Sunrise’ film that Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater are working on, you have to admit that the poem in the first film was surprisingly moving.
Oh, baby with your pretty face
Drop a tear in my wineglass
Look at those big eyes
See what you mean to me
Sweet cakes and milkshakes
I am a delusion angel
I am a fantasy parade
I want you to know what I think
Don’t want you to guess anymore
You have no idea where I came from
We have no idea where we’re going
Launched in life
Like branches in the river
Caught in the current
I’ll carry you, you’ll carry me
That’s how it could be
Don’t you know me?
Don’t you know me by now?
Do you think they can capture this kind of poignancy for a third time? (I thought that the last scene in Before Sunset was pretty much perfect but I can’t help but be curious about what happens next.)
