    It’s easy to imagine why a lot of people gave this film a one-star review. Perhaps it made them uncomfortable, and perhaps they reacted as people tend to do with uncomfortable things. I’ll admit that it maybe made me a little uncomfortable as well. But it it also made me angry, and it also brought me to tears. Few films these days manage to elicit any feeling other than perhaps a mild headache. This is not a popcorn movie to watch with your buddies. Maybe it’s better watched alone. But it is a fantastic and moving film that is worth not only watching, but absorbing completely and contemplating afterwords. This is the kind of film that reminds me that film-making is actually an art form and not just a soulless business. And in every aspect this film is brilliant art.

    Watch Moonlight Twice, March 1, 2017

    The first time I saw Moonlight, I was too busy watching the movie to appreciate it. I was following plot, thinking ahead, wondering what was going to happen. I was angry at Chiron’s mom, frustrated by teen bullies and worried about Chiron’s day-to-day life. I thought the ending was abrupt and not exceedingly hopeful.
    I couldn’t have been more wrong.
    The second time I watched Moonlight, I was able to SEE it. And what I saw is a near masterpiece of film making. The acting is superb, but so subtle that it’s easily missed. Quiet nuances, a look, a movement. Every actor in every role brings a palpable reality to his/her role that breathes life and depth and emotion to the screen.
    It is the art, the things unsaid, the gentle touches that makes Moonlight a truly great motion picture.

    Started to watch with zero expectation or idea of what Moonlight was about, beyond the basic premise – boy growing up in bad neighborhood in Miami. Vivid characters, so perfectly played, who i felt as though i knew almost immediately, and for whom I developed strong feelings – for better or worse – just as quickly. That’s rare.

    In contrast to the quick appreciation of the movie’s characters, the story progressed at a slow swagger, a pace befitting a hot, humid Miami. It was a movie of moments; blink at the wrong time and you could miss out on that intimate understanding I mentioned above. As many have said, this movie is experienced as much with your eyes as with your ears. A script of subtle, physical and emotional choreography more so than of words, sentences and paragraphs.

    I’m not sure why, but this movie left me feeling like, somewhere along the line, I let my life get unnecessarily complicated. That I, too, should be more about the moments. That I should pay more attention to the subtle, physical and emotional choreography that surrounds me, and worry less about the words, so often misleading or misunderstood.

    In a world of fake news, clickbait, catchphrases, product placement and the next best thing, this movie brought simplicity, depth and authenticity.

    No catchphrase required.
