Movie Reviews

  • in some ways Beale feels less like a movie than a well-staged, meticulously shot play; a period piece that floats beyond its specific time and place and into the realm of allegory
    Review rate : B+ by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • finely wrought literary adaptation; Barry Jenkins creates many remarkable scenes, particularly as the male characters discuss the racist realities with which they live
    3 of 4 by Kate Taylor [Globe and Mail ]
  • bold, bluesy and beautiful; If the movie's slow burn seems to build toward a powerful release that doesn't materialize, the sheer beauty of its craft and the heartfelt feeling behind every scene nonetheless command attention
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Barry Jenkins channels all of James Baldwin's lyricism and anger into a story of love and injustice that burns with a gentle flame, occasionally blazing into a white heat. It's beautifully crafted and,...it's definitely cinematic
    4 of 5 by Phil de Semlyen [Time Out London ]
  • Barry Jenkins brings a colorful, idealistic eye to James Baldwin's 1974 novel; A work of social realism elevated to poetic heights by the sheer beauty of its voice and the humanism of its spirit
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • a masterful poetic romance; With more vitality and humor than "Moonlight," Barry Jenkins' reliance on the original text opens up the filmmaker's style, but he also turns the material into a broader meditation on James Baldwin's broader concerns
    Review rate : A- by Eric Kohn [Indiewire ]
