Moonlight

Moonlight ★★★★★

On the morning of the Oscars, I took the one hour and 50 minutes to consider once more one of the most surprising Oscar wins of them all... opening with Barry Jenkins’ camera swirling around Mahershala Ali’s Juan... so perfectly paired with Janelle Monáe’s Teresa... with Nicholas Britell’s score accompanying both baptism in the ocean and the rebirth of a bloody face in a sink of iced water... segueing into act three, with a lick of the lips from Black... “Your heart ain’t gotta be black like mine, baby...” 

No discussion about the best films of the decade is complete without Moonlight.
