Critic Reviews‘For its exuberance and its difference, its fine performances and its devastating finale, Dogville is essential viewing.’ London Evening Standard ‘Bold stylistic decisions reinforce the themes of the narrative, while a strong story and convincing performances prove equal to the task of carrying such an extended running time.’ Empire Magazine ‘Thought provoking with its dense and intense themes, Dogville highlights the best and the worst in us all; the emotions it agitates are hard to shake.’ Urban Cinefile ‘These elements come together to form a movie that is clinically ironic but also unique, inspired, and quite sublime.’ Paste Magazine

Moonlight is a 2016 American coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Barry Jenkins, based on Tarell Alvin McCraney's unpublished semi-autobiographical play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue.
The film presents three stages in the life of the main character: his youth, adolescence, and early adult life. It explores the difficulties he faces with his sexuality and identity, including the physical and emotional abuse he endures growing up. Filmed in Miami, Florida, beginning in 2015, Moonlight premiered at the Telluride Film Festival on September 2, 2016. It was released in the United States on October 21, 2016 by A24, receiving positive reviews and grossing over $65 million worldwide.
Moonlight is cited as one of the best films of the 21st century. The film won several accolades, including the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Drama and the Academy Award for Best Picture, along with Best Supporting Actor for Ali and Best Adapted Screenplay for Jenkins and McCraney from a total of eight nominations. It became the first film with an all-black cast, the first LGBTQ-related film, and the second-lowest-grossing film domestically (behind The Hurt Locker) to win the Oscar for Best Picture. Joi McMillon became the first black woman to be nominated for an editing Oscar, and Ali became the first Muslim to win an acting Oscar.
‘You won't find a more sensitively rendered, evocative, or surprising coming-of-age film than Barry Jenkins's Moonlight.’ Independent (UK)

'Precious is an emotional powerhouse, a triumph of bruising humor and bracing hope that deserves its place among the year's best films.' Rolling Stone
'While it may not be perfect on a technical level, dramatically it's a blow-your-socks-off triumph. Be moved. Very, very moved' Empire Magazine
'A film full of life and love, well-meaning and, judging by the reaction in the US, a genuine and important phenomenon that says act - don't dwell - on your dreams.' Time Out
'Impressive performances power a surprisingly lively account of an existence blighted by material and spiritual poverty.' Film 4
'Precious is a big-screen "misery memoir" that is so keen to trace the hellish pathology of familial abuse that it risks glorifying its own subject, or at least shooting it with horror-movie verve.' Times UK
'It isn't the transcendent masterpiece that some admirers would have you believe: more like a black-comic nightmare that isn't exactly supposed to be funny. It's certainly arresting, though.' The Guardian
