    If Beale Street Could Talk

    ★★★★★

    After approximately 3 seconds into this I knew, that I'd love this film. And I did. I loved every minute, every second, every millisecond of 'If Beale Street Could Talk'.

    Barry Jenkins, like other directors that are getting more and more popular during this century (Lanthimos, Chazelle, Villeneuve), just knows how to put a movie together. Everything is done exceptionally. The storytelling, (character-)writing, acting, the beautiful asthetics, camera movements, editing, all comes together with such precision that you forget how…

    Zurich Film Festival 2018 Review #3:

    I‘m not the guy that immediately writes a review after a movie but this, this is a movie guys. You can‘t miss this one. It‘s an achievement. The Oscars for sound editing, sound mixing, editing and possibly score are taken. I don‘t know what else to say. This is the best movie of 2018 so far. Go see this.
