Moonlight ★★★★★

po·et·ry / ˈpōətrē
noun
literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm

this film is the definition of poetic cinema filled with metaphors, emotional depth, and expert pacing in its three-part stanzas. breathtaking performances from the entire cast, beautiful visuals, a gorgeous soundtrack, and a truly perfect screenplay all contribute to making this one of the best movies i've seen this decade. a truly transcendent piece of storytelling that encapsulates blackness, masculinity, sexuality, identity and loneliness that even i found myself being incredibly connected to.

"in moonlight, black boys look blue."
