Probably one of the best movies I've ever seen. Visually arresting, the score is gorgeous, very strong main and supporting cast whose acting makes me forget I'm at a movie at all. And Barry Jenkins is an absolute wizard for creating one cohesive character with three different actors of different ages. Seamless. The only downside to Moonlight is that I think my friends are getting really tired of me talking about how great it is.

I think this story will be UTTERLY UNRELATABLE for most people who see it. But, as Chinua Achebe puts it, "It's not difficult to identify with somebody like yourself, somebody next door who looks like you. What's more difficult is to identify with someone you don't see, who's very far away, who's a different color, who eats a different kind of food. When you begin to do that then literature is really performing its wonders." This movie is performing its wonders.

Mahershala Ali takes command of this film for the first part, earning his Oscar, and the film never really recovers when his character dies (offscreen) between the first and second acts. Ends up as a powerful statement on growing up different in a harsh urban environment, but does drag a little between set pieces.

Amazing journey; it’s rare for me to cry in a movie, and even rarer to cry after the final shot. Gorgeous score too!

#42 on "Best of Rotten Tomatoes", #127 on "Reddit top 250", forgot the other 4 official lists. I wonder why this movie is not on the list "2010"?. I'm just asking...

This is a proper love story, not La la land.
Also, the colours in this movie are so wonderful, it should win an Oscar for Best achievement in cinematography.

If, as I believe, "art is a mirror that reflects life in a different light...", then this is HIGH ART......

a series of movie clips taken throughout the life of a black gay person. no special talents on editing, no character development, no spectacular storytelling, no, no, no... utterly overrated.
