Moonlight (2016) Review

Undoubtedly 2016’s most relevant, Moonlight is an earth-shattering success from Barry Jenkins; a personal and intimate depiction of a black male sprouting from child to adult in an environment that doesn’t understand him. It’s a profound piece of cinema, subtly exquisite in each scene and deeply impactful. The acts are hardly colossal or ‘exciting’ for that matter. Instead, its honest and rousing performances, along with the sensational cinematography, are what make the film beautiful to watch. Jenkins has delivered a genuine stunner.

8.6/10
