McCabe & Mrs. Miller
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

I admire the mood of the film, wrought so well thanks to the chilly, evocative cinematography, its measured pace, and sad performances. It is a western for those (like myself) averse to most westerns, one that manages to dissemble most western tropes while making somber statements on capitalism, life's cruelties, and changing times. It's a lyrical anti-western that rewards another viewing.

Moonlight
Moonlight (2016)

Jenkins's second film may be a masterpiece, but such a heavy label threatens to upend the delicate wonders of this film, which reveals its pleasures with a quiet elegance. Its lush colors and images, vivid performances and musical score, wash over you like ocean waves gently splashing ashore. You breathe in this film. Jenkins's lyricism draws you into Chiron's story with such clarity and poetry that it becomes your story. In a year which saw the rise of hatred and ignorance, this film fills you up with love and understanding.

Medicine for Melancholy

Depicts black people who are actually normal; a real miracle of filmmaking these days. Its perceptive views on race and class, charismatic performances, and beautiful, desaturated photography are just icing on the cake. Sad that a film like this gets no audience, but Tyler Perry continues to make millions off utter nonsense, from mostly black people's wallets no less. Something is clearly wrong there.
