Pariah ★★★★★

This film packs more emotional punch in 86 minutes than most melodramas do in 2 hours. I had my doubts upon hearing it drew comparisons to Moonlight, (or rather, Moonlight drew comparisons to Pariah), but upon viewing it I am more than pleasantly surprised. If Pariah were a drug, I’d inject it right into my bloodstream. Outstanding job by Dee Rees and company. Mudbound here I come.
