Moonlight me I managed to watch only after the ceremony "Oscar". And too bad, because looked high expectations after reading the reviews. I was expecting more action, and got a pretty relaxed and soft dramatic film about the in the name of Chiron (Trevant Rhodes), who carried their love through the whole life. Love to childhood friend, Kevin, in performance Andre Holland.

I don't take this film with the perspective of "a film about a homosexual African-American" as he described in various sites and in reviews. It — delicate and poetic drama about  ... how people looking for yourself? Not might say that he's looking for, he just live as can not letting out your emotions:

"you have not changed all as the three words are not able".

Since childhood, intimidating black wolf, he of that at heart. He is afraid of his mom, loves and hates at the same time; it is afraid of classmates who humiliate him for bessovestnoi and called gay; he can't open up even for those who took it and loved it.

Yes, Chiron (aka Little Black) Harbor feelings for your friend, but not understand desire, some kind of affection. And the kissing scene is not there was no lust, was a touching, touching and ease. And shining bluish light of the moon he says without any words of tenderness two boys, two lighting a dark silhouette on the ocean.

Has its own charm in warm, muted and neon colors that are immersed in the atmosphere of the film. For the expense of them, perhaps, the film and seemed "tube", and I looked like a fascinating story where there is nothing superfluous, no vulgarity and nothing flashy, here is a peaceful world dark-skinned introvert harmoniously painted in blue gold.

What he wanted from life this guy is. he really gay or just never in my life is not have met the concerns and so I trusted to those who took it, that's not wanting in return? It is to think out of the viewer.

If the film won the "Oscar"? Think Yes. According to me, let wins social drama about the Fate of taking over the soul — not because acutely tragic, and relaxing and pleasant.

And it is one of those films are not want to paint on the items separately the pros and cons, a clear sign of the problem. Just enjoy the story, covered in blue with a silver tint.

souls — very brittle material.

It is thus possible to summarize seen the creation of Barry Jenkins. One can argue endlessly about that, whether deserved got a picture of your rewards, but the fact remains — the movie brought a lot of noise. Disgruntled cries intertwined with the enthusiastic, and not understanding the message of this picture is exactly the same as recognize it as a masterpiece.

Making the native to the city of Miami, Director without the work showed the back and the secret of his nooks and crannies. Good camera work and really natural acting are the main figures on the field. The only thing that it is unclear that why is Maharshal Ali got "Oscar" for a role of the second plan. On my opinion, he did Michael Shannon, who played in the movie "Under cover of night", more worthy of this award.

Movie Barry Jenkins and really turned out very problematic and ideological. Let it not has some new connection that these topics have already times touched the cinema, but the message "Moonlight" can be considered quite relevant for today. I think so many the Academy decided to support this creation, which illuminates the theme of humanism in the background of modern brutality and saadulayev cynicism.

In our world, very often people put on some mask to hide his true self to society. The fear of being unrecognized and misunderstood makes many "cave" under General rules, foundations and stereotypes. Forcing themselves to frame, people are trying to become, what they want to see the society. But because each person in the essence is unique and it is not necessarily correspond to any standard views. But when someone simply does not can find its reflection in society, approving of the sight, yeah and just close people who are willing to support him, he is nothing like to dive deep in himself, closed and not contact with environment.

The Oscar-winning picture came out a little unsaid, partly mysterious and quiet. Exactly the same as and the main character of the movie. It inner world is a huge house, a door from which he keep tightly locked from all, letting absolutely anyone. Interesting performance, a beautiful soundtrack and stunning tone of the movie makes you watch it until the end. The movie is absolutely not have some campaigning slogans, appeals to be tolerant. Moonlight not is a screaming movie. This quiet a little angular picture of the boy who so all I do not understand who is he on the boy who just wanted to be myself, open up and become full in this cruel society.

Moonlight is a film types, which shows the depravity of our environment, our living, our existence. And saving it will not have no one. And let the moon light and appears white, not a vicious clean at clash it finally fades, dissolves in the thick gray tones leaving only a glare. The main character is an impersonation of ray, which at the confluence is scattered on particles leaving from myself as those the glare. Moonlight hero not brings a goal to clear the sinfulness and depravity of others, because it like silk cloth falls on this dirty sand and the coincidence of time of a growing canvas that will rise up and this sand will slowly drain. Like a trickle of water. But the canvas is already clean will. Particles the dirty sand will settle there. And the white light is not will Shine through through through the silk fabric. The last ray of fade in the end, the canvas to climb high have not meant to be.

The severity of those of grit to pull it off bottom he resists already do not can. Like a maple leaf he slowly gliding in the same dirty sand. And the canvas to nobody concerned, have will lie under the dunes, those the grains of sand.

Film whether this year? According to the message which he brings of course. After all, the best film should really leave a strong imprint, he needs to change the minds and ideas of man. He can be malosimeynyy in some not consistent original its structure. But should change the views on the things don't just to show them, and is that change. As said header is that is the "Veiled openness", that property a hint of the moonlight coming in the likeness of partial shade that dims with each passing minute. It look into soul is available to the mind.
