Gold Derby‘s Paul Sheehan reported this morning that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had decided to classify Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy‘s Before Midnight, easily one of 2013’s best films, as a comedy. While this gives the Sony Classics release a shot at winning a Golden Globe award for Best Motion Picture Comedy/Musical, which is fine, there’s only one moment in the entire film that delivers an actual laugh — when Hawke calls Delpy “the mayor of Crazy Town.” But that’s okay. It’s engages start to finish with bright talk and a nice zingy back-and-forth quality, and that’s all the Globey guys need.
