Moonlight starts previewing today so I think it’s time for its own thread (also to do a little writing JAG)
I saw it for the second time today and it really is a phenomenal piece of cinema. Every scene feels vital, everyone is cast to perfection and puts in an incredible performance, it manages to be both brutally realistic and cinematically poetic at the same time.
I think literally the only minor criticism I can level at it is the scene where Adult Chiron/Black has a wet dream about Adult Kevin even though he doesn’t know what he looks like yet but that’s such a minor quibble and doesn’t really detract from the overall feel of the film that it doesn’t bother me.
It is pretty much a perfect film and deserves to win the Best Film Oscar IMO, edging out Manchester By The Sea (only just mind)
