Richard Linklater first hit this list at #86 with 1993’s “Dazed and Confused.” Two years later, he directed a romantic drama starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy about two young people who meet on a train to Vienna and spend one hopeful night together. While the plot isn’t very extensive, a sequel was made in 2004 that picked up the story nine years later (“Before Sunset”), and a third film (“Before Midnight”) had the couple reuniting again 18 years after they first met.
