Eric went into this Five not sure what was going to happen and found himself going through a whole roller coaster of emotions. Austin and Eric go through the films they watched and discussed more of Richard Linklater’s fine work. Most importantly, since recording the Before Sunrise episode Eric has ignored Austin’s advice and quickly watched the rest of the set. So there are some spoilers on their mini-discussion of Before Sunset and Before Midnight. Also, enough of this quiet talking–it’s time for a radical new Five!
How did a film about two people walking around Vienna and talking about whatever comes into their minds turn into a beloved cult trilogy? Austin and Eric find out by diving into Before Sunrise. Yet they can’t do it alone. They are joined by the wonderful director and co-writers of the independent romance film, Hank and Asha. James E. Duff, Julia Morrison and the guys discuss what it takes to depict a true connection in fiction, how conversations change when both people choose to be completely honest and why this ending is so damn good.
