Moonlight (2016)

★★★★½ Watched 17 Jan, 2020

Very powerful story that leaves a lot unspoken, which elevates it above the average movie experience. The main character’s arc is presented in three life’s stages, each carrying a key turning point in his life. The scenes move along, always advancing the story, but the camera tends to linger whenever emotions run deep. I love how was the camera intimately positioned in the swimming lesson scene, becoming a third person who’s invisibly part of the moment. I don’t remember the last time the ending left me so strongly emotionally charged empathizing with the main character. Powerful stuff.
