Moonlight ★★★★★

The sea breezes through Moonlight, as much a part of the musical texture of the film as the breathtaking score. Chiron is a character in mosaic, and each of the three individual pieces of his history create such a coherent feeling of understanding of who he is that it's incredible that they also manage to weave together to create overall consistency. Moonlight is a portrait of growth, of the way we're never the same, just layers and layers of our own pasts, and how we constantly forge ourselves into something new.

For whatever we lose(like a you or a me)
it’s always ourselves we find in the sea
