Christian Science Monitor
Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy are attractive stars, but what's most appealing about the picture is the value it puts on sharing ideas and feelings through language. Full Review

Sunrise feels more like an absorbing experiment than a supple success. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
What Mr. Linklater does best here is to come up with conversational gambits that have just the right fancifulness to suit this situation. Full Review
Hal Hinson
Washington Post
Though Linklater allows the movie to wander, he never allows the pace to slacken, and more often than not he finds some unexpected bit of found poetry or cultural kitsch to make the digressions worthwhile. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Before Sunrise speaks as much to the mind as to the heart, and much of what it says is likely to strike a responsive chord -- a rare and special accomplishment for any motion picture. Full Review
