    Caring about something is seeing it for what it truly is. The way that the main character looks at a horse is mirrored by how Choe Zhao looks at her subject. Beautiful cinamatography. Magic in a glass!

    It takes a lot of confidence to look a fellow human in the eye. It takes a truly great filmmaker to make a film that looks its viewer straight in the eye and tells you a story about love and the complexities of a life in a far from perfect world. True to the original book yet itis unique to itself in presentaion. If there was a more gorgeous film this year I did not see it. Barry Jenkins is a goddamn master.

Yes this film is far perfect. It’s not great at horror and feels like two movies taped together. However, it is blast. The performances are as good as the character names (Morf Vandewalt!?! Amazing!). I also have to give credit to the art references that if you…
