If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk ★★★★½

fuck!!! i cried pretty much through this whole movie!!! literally, when the strings came in on the first shot, i was tearing up and it didn't stop till the movie was over. jfc. this SCORE!!! UGH i've never heard a more beautiful score iN MY LIFE! the cinematography & production design was absolutely stunning too, and the story is so heartbreaking but surprisingly hopeful at times. the pacing in this is a bit uneven at times, and not all the stylistic choices worked imo, but goddamn if it didn't move me. dunno how he does it, but Barry Jenkins did. that. thank you.
