Critic Reviews for If Beale Street Could Talk
Barry Jenkins channels all of James Baldwin's lyricism and anger into a story of love and injustice that burns with a gentle flame, occasionally blazing into a white heat.
You've never seen romantic love depicted on screen with such lyrical and gorgeous intensity, or systemic injustice brought to such vivid and enraging life. Film classes will be taught about Jenkins' use of color.
Jenkins has cemented his style: lush romance on top, hyper-realistic despair just beneath the surface.
If the film lacks Moonlight's sheer expressive power and primal simplicity, Jenkins is reaching further this time, telling a bigger story than the heartbreak and alienation of one taciturn kid.
Are you in the mood for love yet? Jenkins' movie will put you there.
