Those iconic lines: spoiler

I get goosebumps from that delivery, from both actors.

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.

Fantastic score. Really made the movie. And Dwight Henry was fantastic! Disappointed that he didn't end up with any nominations, but he was great regardless and I'll always remember his performance.
