If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk ★★★★½

oh wow......beautiful and romantic and harrowing and utterly heartbreaking and just like, wow. barry jenkins is such a masterful director; this film felt so solidly made and real it was like watching strangers live real life from behind some sort of glass, as if it wasn't even a film at all. also the performances of the entire cast were just incredible & visceral and the score was literally one of the best i've EVER heard and so perfectly complementary to it all. what a wonder to behold. thank you barry jenkins & thank you james baldwin
