    Love a dope fetishistic film, especially when it comes with extra sleaze.

    Only Herzog would follow up Fitzcarraldo with this.

    "Mateo, you don't understand women."

    ...neither did 77 year old Luis Buñuel.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Those last five minutes offer the most subtly resonant instance of catharsis ever put on screen. A lifetime of longing and internal anguish overcome by a single gesture of outward vulnerability. The serene magnitude of a man liberating that little boy he has always been and finally accepting himself for who he is. No matter what Chiron's and Kevin's futures entail, I keep coming back to the refrain from Frank Ocean's "Godspeed:"

    This love will keep us through blinding of the eyes
    Silence in the ears, darkness of the mind
