Moonlight ★★★★½

One of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. The complex story, the way it's shot effectively. I try not to use the word 'effective' but I can't help it, most of it worked for me. I've never seen race x masculinity x sexuality done like this before so I hope this will lead to more.

Great performances all around too. Trevante Rhodes was incredible. Mahershala Ali better get that Oscar. My selfishness wishes we could've seen more of him. I wish we could see more of everything. Preferably by exploring that time gap between the second and third act. Nevertheless, I thought Jenkins left few but enough clues on screen and I find myself appreciating the ambiguity of it all.
