Moonlight (Barry Jenkins – 2016) A-

I’ve got no proof but i just know that Moonlight can be equally good with no dialogue. It would be great to watch with just the excellent soundtrack playing and nothing else. This one has one hell of an awesome score. It’s told in three chapters and is the story of Chiron, a gay black kid in Miami growing up with a junkie mom in a tough neighborhood. We see him as a kid in elementary school, a high schooler and then as a grown man. My favorite chapter is probably the first one with the perfectly portrayed relationship that grows between him and a gangster who becomes a father figure to him.
