If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk ★★★★★

It takes a lot of confidence to look a fellow human in the eye. It takes a truly great filmmaker to make a film that looks its viewer straight in the eye and tells you a story about love and the complexities of a life in a far from perfect world. True to the original book yet itis unique to itself in presentaion. If there was a more gorgeous film this year I did not see it. Barry Jenkins is a goddamn master.
