i’m floored. barry jenkins melded moonlight’s heavy wong kar wai influence into a formalist tragedy. incredible. there’s so many paths barry could’ve taken after winning best picture, and i’m so glad it’s this one. nick britell and james laxton continue to prove themselves as gods but honestly i just gotta sit on this. going to be thinking about this for a looooong time. really didn’t think anything would top first reformed but,,, here we are. bravo bravo
i saw somewhere that this was one of the most complex films to edit of all time, and i totally see why and think it was very worth it. props to nick johnson & will merrick for being able to work with 33(!) video tracks and execute them so precisely to aneesh chaganty’s vision. i’d leave my job at google to make such an incredible and immersive film too. hope we get more movies like this. gonna check out the unfriended movie soon probably, really enjoyed this.
