Seeing the scores received (from the most popular users) I realize their bad taste.
It is just a well directed, edited, produced, acted and sometimes poorly written movie.
OMG LOL BEST MOVIE EVER
What could have been a post-apocalyptic wonder that embodied the most obscure and complex human implosions, or an epic and powerful outcome.
End up conforming to being the biggest fanservice feast and a real gold pin for the pockets of Disney executives.
Moonlight goes beyond the pretension of being only a visual poem, it encompasses many concepts such as childhood, cruelty, sexualit and rejection (Never victimization as has been pointed out ) as few films dare.
It is not about the minorities or about being politically correct, the film is about the silent hell with which many human beings live throughout their lives.
Personally I consider that Moonlight is easily one of the most subtle and pure films I have seen in American cinema in resent years.
