i want you to stop what you are doing right now.
get in the shower,
pick out a nice outfit,
and find the closest theater playing “moonlight” tomorrow.
( x go to fandango )
i am completely blown away at what i watched today.
i haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.
i’m going to give a quick review without giving too much away.
although i reallllllllllly want to talk about it with someone.
this movie was heavy.
let’s get into it…
when i arrived at the theater,
i was expecting a crowd of “us”.
the entire theater was packed with:
it was 3 or 4 other blacks in there.
3 were vixens who were solo.
1 was on a date with a snow fox.
so “moonlight” is about a wolf named chiron and the 3 stages of his life.
it takes us on chiron’s journey of self discovery and homosexuality,
but within a life of poverty.
from the time we meet chiron as a cub,
we understand why he is so withdrawn and shy.
he was different and everyone could see it.
kevin could see it.
i was him at some point of my life.
i might be still.
it was good to see someone i could relate with and not a stereotype.
the movie also didn’t allow chiron’s character to wear his sexuality on his sleeve.
it wasn’t really a “gay” movie.
“chiron” was the theme of the movie.
trying to find himself,
and wanting the love from a parent who couldn’t provide it.
this is what made the movie so refreshing.
i will font this…
and hopefully it doesn’t give too much away…
but chiron wanted to emulate the only male in his life.
the only older male figure that gave a damn about him.
i found that interesting that he looked up to him so much,
that he started to become him.
by the time he became an adult in the third act,
he was that older male figure.
you can impact someone’s life and not even realize it.
can you please go see this movie?
we can all take something out of it.
there is something,
most of us can relate to in this life.
you will not be disappointed.
i promise you.
low key: i found myself attracted to chiron,
the adult male.
he was so sexy,
but his vulnerability was what made me fall in love with him.
i love a wolf who is hard on the outside,
but has many layers and depths to who he is.
that is so attractive to me.
i would like to meet a wolf like chiron.
bawdy and all.
nothing turns me on more than that.
…am i the only one who thinks the bully in his teens was dl?
there is one particular scene that made me think so.
…and they all need oscars.
go see this movie!
