    I saw it last October when it was showing on London film fest. The “pure perfection” review just came out at that time which kind of made it this year’s Boyhood. So I was really excited about it. I didn’t know it was about homosexuality. It actually caught me off guard a bit. I mean I’ve got no problem with this topic and Carol was my favourite movie of 2015. I just think that this movie was kinda…lost, yet still asking the audience to be politically correct. Like if I say I don’t like this movie, would you think that it’s just because I’m being racist and homophobic? Let me put it this way, I would still LOVE My Own Private Idaho and Brokeback mountain if they were portrayed by black people. I loved Hidden Figures too. It’s about the story, and the way he tells it…I just can’t feel it. The cinematography was spectacular. And ironically that’s the only thing I can remember about the movie. Alright I prob need to see it one more time…Sorry if I offended you or anything!

      Lol not offended! I could see that point of view. I didn’t write my review of Moonlight right away which turned out to be a good thing since it grew on me the more I thought about it. You might have also just been let down by hearing all the buzz surrounding it! I went into it kind of blind without knowing much

  2. What’s burned into my head after viewing are so many of the scenes/images. Like the third act car ride back to the old friend’s place, or the schoolyard incident, or even just the closeups of various character’s faces.

    One of the best, no doubt. It should garner tons of Oscar love, and deservedly so, just because it is a great film, not because of #OscarsSoWhite (hated that “movement”) backlash.
