Moonlight: Crash Course Film Criticism #13

Advertisements

Moonlight is a hard-edged yet beautifully made story about a black American dealing with his sexuality in a sometimes unforgiving and violent world. Its director, Barry Jenkins, uses every trick in the filmmaking book to put us in the perspective of the main character, Chiron. It’s an amazing accomplishment, as Michael Aranda talks about in this episode of Crash Course Film Criticism.
