Hello stranger: memory, love, and Moonlight

Moonlight is rich, evocative and perfectly realised -- it's the best film of the year.

Charlie Lewis — Journalist

Charlie Lewis


...all the parts of a landscape, so dangerous for the soul, the impossibility of ever finding out where that path you see leads...on a distant slope or in a gap in the trees there would appear, and, as it were, stop for an instant, like air retained in the lungs, a spot so enchanting that it seemed that if one could stop the train and go thither, forever, to you my love...But a thousand beech trunks were already madly leaping by, whirling in a sizzling sun pool, and again the chance for happiness was gone.

    Thanks Charlie. A perceptive review of a fine movie.

      Thank you! As you can probably tell, I was very fond of it, and was therefore very nervous about doing it justice

    Brilliant review Charlie. Looking forward to hopefully reading your thoughts on Call Me By Your Name, a film which deals with similar themes in a beautifully evocative and profound way.
