What is film but a medium that asks us to experience worlds — physical and emotional — beyond our own? It’s when it brings us to tears or makes us overflow with joy that film has the possibility of slipping past our defenses to challenge how we perceive the world and maybe even ourselves. The way to accomplish this isn’t to try and tell a story that aims to speak to everyone but crafting one that traffics in specificity. No recent film does that with greater success than Moonlight.

The Oscar-winning film Moonlight gives an impression throughout of being tinged with the color blue. Already in the beginning, after a blue car, its blue interior, white T-shirt and pillow tinted blue by morning light, blue sneaker soles, and blue plastic trash cans at the beach, comes an extraordinary scene of a black man holding a black boy’s body on top of the ocean, the camera lowered until it is fractionally submerged, enclosing the baptism by swimming lesson in pale sky and rolling water.

Its delicate humanism; Laxton’s hauntingly intimate photography; the brilliant performances of the cast; Barry Jenkins’ masterful direction—this has all stayed with me since I reluctantly walked left the theatre on that balmy Saturday afternoon. The ushers had politely made their presence known as soon as the end credits began, but I was not ready to leave the cinema just yet… I wanted to listen closely to Nicholas Britell’s lush"End Credits Suite" as it played out the film’s closing credits.

  • chanandre's rating of the film Moonlight

    In the end, us boys we all turn into our Fathers. We just want to be held, to be hugged, to be loved, to be desired, to be respected, to be wanted. And loved LOVE is the most beautiful of things. Beach scene might just've entered the top of my list for "Most Romantic & Erotic scene EVER" on film. I did not know you could portray sex, attraction, desire, lust, horniness in such a subtle way. Someone's a Mann's fanboy.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Moonlight

    How refreshing to be able to go into the cinema and see a film of such emotional depth and subtlety. Great acting and great photography. If only this were the standard for American films!

  • Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Moonlight

    A tale of growing up in both learning right vs. wrong & the power of being embraced. <== That is how best I would describe this film. Also the fact it had some very strong performances & masterfully-crafted camerawork, as well. I wished the third act could have extended a little with the ending so I would get what happened next afterwards.

  • Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film Moonlight

    Budget 1 500 000$. World Box Office 65 046 687$. Return on Investment 4200%. 1/26 most profitable movies == This good melodrama, not free of cliches, reflects both black & gay empowerments. 3 uneven, but captivating parts, until a moving final "Hello, stranger" === Ce bon mélo, non sans clichés, traduit autant la montée en puissance noire que gay. 3 parties, inégales mais captivantes, jusqu'au final "Hello, stranger"

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Moonlight

    Underdeveloped, cliched, and progressively-problematic. Summary: a shy, gay wimp (homosexual cliche #1) with mommy issues that spring from her crack addiction (homo #2 and race #1) that she buys from the most unthreatening, kind-hearted dealer ever (WTF #1). Character positives are badly conceived generalizations, faults are underwritten gimmicks. Kevin is more dramatically unique than the lead character of Chiron.

  • Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Moonlight

    A frustrating experience: it feels like an epic character drama, a la "Cinema Paradiso" or "Children of Paradise," that's been shoehorned into a more digestable framework by an overly cautious editor. would not be surprised to learn there's a greatly extended Director's Cut floating around out there somewhere

  • Mugino's rating of the film Moonlight

    Objective judgment was impossible in the aftermath of #oscarsowhite, which is unfair because this film was lauded for the wrong, transient reasons instead of the indelible, right ones. The headline is not the inevitable experiences of these young men; it's the luminous cinematography and bated silences that access an unspoken truth that survives even the ravages of fate.

  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Moonlight

    It gives you poetry, loneliness and such beautiful stills - but it's also full of blank spaces that needed to happen. The first and second parts stand out for me, such a subtle take on gay childhood: everything's sensations and touch, exploring the world with so many insecurities, so many questions. It's all about him: Chiron's surrounded by mute spaces, multiple questions and this obscure kind of star light.
