If Beale Street Could Talk ★★★★

“you ready for this?”

so immaculate that it’s almost untouchable in a way, like looking at artwork through glass. it’s still a sight to behold, but feels slightly inaccessible somehow. the story and how it’s presented and mixed up is my biggest issue here, but it’s overall packaged so carefully and beautifully that i find i didn’t mind much at all in the end

and nicholas britell really did it again: this is easily the best score of the year. my goosebumps were continuous
