Moonlight

Moonlight is a prime example of the ephemeral and indefinable qualities of “it.” Here is a deeply personal story, sometimes achingly and uncomfortably so about one man’s defining and altering experiences across three different points. It’s just the personal empathy and emotional investment that Moonlight commands of us, but the vibrant direction of Barry Jenkins that makes this such a tran... read more

Notes:
*From the trailer it looked like this would be sort of controversial with it's content.
*I wasn't aware that it would end up being nominated for so many awards and be so well received.
*It has a pretty interesting and good cast.
*I haven't heard of Barry Jenkins or his other movie before this.
*This is Tarell McCraney's only movie credit to date, but it might... read more

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, eventually, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. Basically, it was pretty much a flawless drama that worked on all levels. Indeed, I was at first quite impressed by its visual style which was sober but also so effective and, yet, they managed to make some rather simple scenes like a characte... read more

“Wanted to see as many 2016 films as possible, especially those that won or were nominated for the big awards. Took me a while to see 'Moonlight', with the controversy it garnered when it was announced for the Best Picture Oscar and the amount of hate it's got here part of me was wary.

Finally getting round to seeing 'Moonlight', it turned out that it was more than well worth the while and that the wariness was not needed. 'Moonlight' is not a perfect film and may not have been my personal pick for the Best Picture award (for me that was 'La La Land' though that is not a popular opinion it seems). Truly admired what it set out to do and found it a brave and powerful film, despite what the detractors say there is far more to 'Moonlight's' appeal than politics, sexuality and race (c” read more

"Moonlight deserved every single accolade that it received during the last awards season. From the impeccable cinematography to the emotions that are captured in scenes where there are no words, Moonlight offered a necessary alternative to the heteronormative romances that we often see onscreen. Barry Jenkins’s masterpiece follows one Black boy through three different phases of his life as he navigates his sexuality, the torment he endures because of his difference, and the people in his lif"

"Todos sabemos que ganó a mejor película solo por ser una película progresista vacía y pretenciosa. Lo peor es su conclusión, de los finales más patéticos que he visto."
