Review: Where'd You Go, Bernadette

There's something exhilarating and befuddling in the structure to so many Richard Linklater films, at least to me. Where'd You Go, Bernadette, the American independent's latest feature, is certainly based upon the 2012 novel of the same nam...


Flixist on YouTube - Top 3 last day of school movies

Alright, alright, alright! Booksmart is amazing and you are making an incredible mistake by not being in a theater right now seeing it! One of the reasons it is so amazing is it perfectly encapsulates that feeling of it being the last day o...


Review: Last Flag Flying

Richard Linklater's movies tend to work best when they feel like hanging out. There's a breeziness to the language as people walk, talk, and spend time with one another that resembles genuine conversation. The Before trilogy best exemplifie...

Nick's Top 15 Movies of 2014

It was the best of films, it was the blurst of films. Hey everyone I'm Nick Valdez, News Editor here for Flixist and you've probably seen my name on a good chunk of the stuff written here. If not, then I'll tell you a bit about myself. I li...


Check it out: Mondo releases Boyhood poster

Boyhood is supposed to be really good. Really, really good. I haven't seen it myself but the film's critical reception has been overwhelmingly positive. I have to give Linklater props for filming the movie in such a unique way, filming over...

Boyhood Review photo

Review: Boyhood

12 years of shooting, watching every actor grow older and change along with the times and the styles. That's how long it took for Richard Linklater to create a film  about life (a boy's life to be precise). Many films have of course be...

First trailer for Richard Linklater's Boyhood

Boyhood was the one film at SXSW I regret not seeing. Since Matt was covering it, we couldn't double up. Then it ended up being fantastic and oof, I won't make that same mistake twice. With Boyhood, Richard Linklater has done something tha...


Richard Linklater's Boyhood coming 2014 says Ethan Hawke

You may remember that in our interview with Ethan Hawke, we discussed Richard Linklater's Boyhood. Linklater has used the same core group of actors (Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Salmon) to make the movie since 2002, and it will depict a ...

Review: Before Midnight

To follow up Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, two of the best character pieces ever made, was always going to be a challenge. Keeping that quality and that momentum going into a third film made another nine years later seemed like an ...


Dazed and Confused spiritual sequel may shoot in Fall

During a Reddit AMA today Richard Linklater was asked about the spiritual sequel he and Matthew McConaughey were planning on shooting. His answer may turn a few heads since the last we heard about it they were simply tossing the idea around...


NYC: A free evening with Linklater, Hawke & Delpy - 5/16

Before Midnight will easily be in my top five films of 2013. Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke, and Julie Delpy have made a worthy sequel to both Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, and I think Midnight will stand on its own as a great explorati...

Sundance Review: Before Midnight

There is an ebb and flow to the laughter between the men and women of my theater, during Before Midnight. As Jesse makes a salient point about the manic nature of women, the men laugh. When Celine talks about the self-serving nature of m...


Richard Linklater's Before Midnight set for May release

Before Midnight was one of Allistair's favorite movies at Sundance 2013 and is one of my most anticipated movies of the year. I'll be catching it at SXSW next month, and I'll probably be seeing it again when it's released in New York and LA...


Linklater/Delpy/Hawke finish shooting Before Midnight

Good news, everyone! The sequel to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset has finished principal photography! That's right, the rumors about the Richard Linklater shoot in Greece were all true, and Julie Delpy's denial and Ethan Hawke's half-trut...


UPDATE: Before Sunset sequel in development in Greece

[UPDATE: MTV spoke with Ethan Hawke who's clarified the rumors about a Before Sunset sequel shooting in Greece at the moment. Hawke told MTV, "[Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy, and I are] here writing a third installment to Before Sunrise. I...


Julie Delpy: Before Sunset sequel not shooting this year

Earlier in the year, Ethan Hawke said there was a 95% chance that the sequel to Before Sunset would shoot this summer. According to series co-writer/co-star Julie Delpy, it looks like the 5% chance of a no-go won out. Speaking with The Play...


Ethan Hawke on Boyhood, a film 12 years in the making

In addition to the Before Sunset sequel that may shoot this summer, Ethan Hawke is working on another Richard Linklater film I can't wait to see. It's called Boyhood. The film chronicles the life of a boy from age 6 to age 18 and his relati...


Before Sunset sequel 95% likely to shoot this summer

Today I sat down with Ethan Hawke to talk about his new psychological drama, The Woman in the Fifth. Inevitably I had to ask about the long-brewing sequel to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. Though he obviously didn't go into plot details,...


Trailer: Bernie

Bernie stars Jack Black and centers around a "renaissance man; community leader and mortician, who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy widow (Shirley MacLaine) that leads to fatal consequences." Basically, he's one of those ...


Before Sunrise to the Future Part III being planned

Before Sunrise and its 9-years-later sequel, Before Sunset, were possibly two of the most simplistic and yet intellectual films ever made. The direction by Richard Linklater is so free-form and casual, as if you're witnessing less of a plot...
