    Moonlight

    ★★★★

    It's a stunner with transcendent moments of emotional honesty. While it doesn't move the way many audiences will expect or want, it is in fact most gripping when it pauses -- the walk from the car to the restaurant during Act III, for example.

    I do think could have benefited from some stronger transitions -- not just between acts but between some individual scenes within each act -- but it's hard to really argue with the final product. Like Carol or Inside Llewyn Davis, its universality and grace will only become clearer after repeat viewings.
