8/10
Important movie. Beautiful movie. Good photo, good acting, good layout - especially if you do not read the plot before! Stylish movie poster (three-part face). Don't know if you watch the movie several times. Won 3 Oscar. 99/100 in metascore on IMDb!

Wong Kar Wai all over the film, but I'm sorry, not as good though.

I wish the film was longer because I never really got to care about the characters. It just seemed empty to me..

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

The pity Oscars are strong with this one, yes they are!

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.

#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...

To me, this was very close to a perfect film. Portraying drama and people's relationships are very often solved through dialogue and clear depictions of heavy emotion. Not here! Not that there's no heavy emotion, there's just such a rich way of conveying the characters' inner processes. The way the shots are built, sometimes spinning around several times, following a character or place. Sometimes taking away the sound, sometimes cutting at the right moment, when there's not much more to be told, or you know what's about to happen. So much effective storytelling is shown in this, it feels like the director's short film experience has really paid off. Incredibly poetic at times, then suddenly extremely up close and down to earth. Great visual and physical drama, instead of pure conversation. Playing, walking, swimming, fighting, hiding, running, driving, getting up and going down again. Beautiful is all I can say :)

I wonder why this one made best movie at the oscars? What would have been the grades if the story would have played in hillbilly country? The story is not that special, the acting is not that special. So what is?

It was an arresting ride, it took me by surprise as I didn't read anything about the plot before watching the film, Barry Jenkins did an exceptional job with the pacing of the story, it was so intuitive to the different storylines, the interaction between characters is a result of that pacing, and for me the acting felt real, organic, it seemed muted at times but I think it was part of telling a story that resonated with that particular community.

Moonlight reminded me of In the Mood for Love a lot, that pacing, that stepping almost quietly between scenes, between storylines, it was glorious to watch. And the fact that the story is relevant more than ever makes it a huge achievement too.

Love and praises and I truly hope that Moonlight catches the eyes of more people, this is the type of cinema the industry has to rescue and encourage. These type of stories, honest and humble ones.

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.

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