There is Before Sunrise fan fiction, there are multiple fan websites, there is a fan-made fourth instalment, entitled Before the End, there are artists like Rozette Rago whose work has been influenced and inspired by the movies. Film critics have picked up on this as well. Twenty-five years ago this month, a modest film was released in theaters across the United States, to little fanfare. Loving a particular film is also different from loving film in general. A film lover, or cinephile, is someone who enjoys watching films and has a passionate interest in cinema, just as an art lover, one could say, is someone who enjoys engaging with art. Shpall’s understanding of ‘devotion’ is more flexible and versatile than Frankfurt’s robust concern, but still, it does not seem to require an active soliciting of input by the beloved and it does not seem at odds with a stalker’s troubling concern-at-a-distance.
