Flawlessly told story that a lot of people really, really need to see and experience and feel. Some people will feel it more than others, and that's OK, because everyone ought to admire the craft at work here.

Oscarbaity, predictable, mostly uninsteresting, and seemingly trying to emulate a certain stylishness to hide its emptiness... until Sanders comes along. He nailed it, and so did Rhodes and Holland (I know, I know). 'Blue is the Warmest Color' drove me to the unfounded conclusion that, given its acceptance, homoeroticism no longer would be a theme worth addressing, but the disarmament of 'masculinity' palpable in this film, enhanced by authenticity and sociological subtexts, proved me wrong.

This is probably the best use of different actors playing the same characters I've ever seen. Certain small mannerisms were picked up and performed flawlessly. It's tells a story ripe with social commentary without pandering or scolding the audience into how things aught to be. It's just a story of one man's journey through a difficult life. This film is beautifully sincere and probably the movie I would recommend that everyone watch from 2016.

Where most films feature a standard narrative arc and often obvious exposition Moonlight evolves organically and every ounce of it feels authentic. The performances, aided by a script of exceptional depth and subtlety, are superb across the board - with more emphasis on listening than talking; a rare thing in mainstream films. One of the most intimate and intense experiences to be had this year.

Its formal innovation regrettably becomes progressively less interesting as the film paces along, which is ultimately the film's most crucial element upon which its story is conveyed--and removing the elements of ethereality thus sadly removes the impact of its narrative delivery. But I digress; it is a very well-made character study.

Features some phenomenal directing and camera work, it also serves as a fantastic character study. The main plot is barebones and it doesn't particularly go anywhere big, but that was an intentional decision. The focus of the film is to take a look at the unfortunate consequences of circumstance and where those consequences lead. There are scenes that are surprising and shocking, but these scenes don't overwhelm the film and are designed for the purpose of giving nuance to its characters.

This hit too close to home for me to even attempt to objectively grade it. I remember having the "what's a faggot?" conversation with my mother for the first time around Little's age, and the actor portraying Little flawlessly captured that bottoming-out feeling you get in your gut when you find out, and you realize the other kids might not be wrong. It captures Florida all too realistically as well, making visual irony of the paradisiac seascapes and environs looming behind human-bred menace.

It's impossible to pinpoint exactly how Barry Jenkins's Moonlight gets inside your head and makes you see the world with new eyes. But it does – and then it owns you. This is a game-changer, the kind of movie that defies glib categorization.

A remarkably moving story about the formative years of a young black man, MOONLIGHT has a sensitive, moody texture that is typically absent from mainstream films about such individuals. The segmentation of this well-acted film--dropping in on the protagonist at ages 7, 16, and 26--forces you to consider the choices made and the truths revealed within the ellipses, and how our identities owe as much to unseen, readily accepted mundanities as pivotal, defining moments.

A young gay black man's life, shown at ages 7, 16, and 26, as he struggles to come to terms with his identity, his troubled mother (Naomie Harris), and his feelings for his closest friend. A sensitively crafted panorama, extremely well-acted across the board, well-directed, and overall quite well-mounted...yet, for all its strengths and all the acclaim it's occasioned, for me it falls just a bit short of greatness, possibly due to the weaknesses of the script and the patness of the third act.

This treats as people characters whose stories have more often been reduced to preconceptions, and attempts to crumble monolithic archetypes into a life lived. The success of this endeavour is apparent, this is a beautifully constructed character study that drifts through time so that it can hold onto a single thread of its protagonist's experience relentlessly, forcing us to see the ripples of circumstance play out across various presents.

I saw this film in a small theatre, where two young men came in by themselves. During the handjob scene, both got up and left. One kept muttering "no no no" as he left. They both came back minutes later. I am not sure how you can function with such fragile heterosexuality. Also, what were they expecting?

The story of sad gay kids being sad and growing up to be sad gay grownups continuing to be sad. Couldn't their lifetimes of soul-crushing sadness and loneliness have been solved by getting a "Grinder" account? It was shot in 3 days and it shows. Worst movie of the year.

There is a type of great filmmaking that can make a scene about nothing in a dingy dining room seem like an epic life moment. Jenkins creates beautiful picture after beautiful picture and at times it feels like the gripping story and emotions come in (a very close) second.

Moonlight reminds me most of David Gordon Green's George Washington in its quiet, melancholy, dignified portrayal of society's marginalia: in this case, a poor, gay, black man in a drug-infested city. It's a very impressionistic work, offering fleeting but vivid glimpses of Chiron's growth and maturation during key moments in his life while withholding the full thrust of his experience. At times, this makes it feel at arm's length, but it's hard to begrudge the approach.

Right from that beautiful opening shot I knew this was going to be something special.Seen this twice now and still struggling to condense all the underlying motifs within the film into a "review". Gonna say two quick things that I related to too much. My dad's GF who was a heroin addict(as are many fam members) dressed exactly like Chiron's mother in the neon lit scenes and "I hated my mom too, miss her like hell now tho"Might be the most profound sentiment from a movie in the last decade or so.

Moonlight is a coming of age tale unlike the usual, hackneyed stuff that is usually put forth. Instead of existential drivel, the young actors burst onto the screen with honest, heart wrenching performances that highlight some heavy material. Jenkins's camera dips and weaves as we are let into an often harrowing, but fully believable, tale. One of 2016's best.

There was a lot of buzz about this movie but I honestly can't understand why. Maybe the style fooled everyone. The director makes a lot of interesting, clever visual choices in terms of lighting and coverage. The acting is mostly great. But what's the story? What did I learn? That bullies beat up quiet kids? That crack addict moms are no good and hard to forgive? This is a movie that shouldn't be tossed aside, but I'm disappointed and felt cheated out of my overpriced movie ticket.

It's been a long time since I've watched a film that reminded me of the form's divine abilities. Moonlight is art at every frame, beating with a genuine purpose. There are no judgments, no crudely injected social commentaries, no agendas here, and the film isn't even sentimentalized. Only a desire to illuminate a certain human being and his condition is explored through Jenkins' inspiring expertise.

An awesomely sincere and beautiful movie. Barry Jenkins combines a unique and evocative score, subtle, effective camerawork, and a cast of incredibly talented actors to tell a story that, although reflective of one lived experience, is capable of touching so many others.

First - this has moments of transcendent beauty, primarily because of the visualization by Jenkins. He uses all the tools cinema affords him - power of the singular image, complex emotional/psychological expression of montage, exquisite sound design. But the transcendence wouldn't be possible without flawless performances (crafted by on-set pacing and editing in-camera). All incarnations of Chiron are perfect. The ending offers such subtle catharsis. My love will grow overtime. Masterpiece.

That God created each of us for a reason. Somewhere in us, there's an image of what we could be, and of what God wants us to be. We're shaped, day by day, by our experiences and our decisions. We're distorted by our scars. And as Christians, I think we should ideally look to heal those scars—with equal measures of love and truth—and not needlessly create new ones. (pluggedin.com)
