Yeah, ROMA is fucking glorious. So wonderful to see an artist operating at peak performance level on such a personal, vigorous piece. The aesthetic is both personal and political here. The aesthetic is wielded to a wonderfully emotive, devastating effect.— Barry Jenkins (@BarryJenkins) September 11, 2018
While Oscar-winning filmmaker Barry Jenkins is already getting insane acclaim and buzz for his upcoming movie 'If Beale Street Could Talk', he's still taking some time to show his love to other anticipated movies being released this fall, including Alfonso Cuaron's 'ROMA'. Steve McQueen's 'Widows', and Timothée Chalamet's performance in 'Beautiful Boy' (and the movie itself).
This was one of the most striking moments of the film for me, a perfectly subtle underscoring of EVERYTHING this film is about. And I could totally feel that many would not get or vibe with it— Barry Jenkins (@BarryJenkins) September 9, 2018
On 'Beautiful Boy' starring Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet:
I lived in the Bay for nearly a decade. Saw a lotta kids who spun out and got thrown to the wolves; Tenderloin was riddled with them. T went there, he went ALL the damn way #BeautifulBoy— Barry Jenkins (@BarryJenkins) September 8, 2018
There’s a bitterness, hatred, a loathing that cuts both ways — it goes inward, it goes out. I hate you. I hate ME. YOU don’t love me? Well “I” don’t love ME — I’m unworthy. A fine line. Well walked.— Barry Jenkins (@BarryJenkins) September 8, 2018
Grade??? GRADE?! I don’t do grades here man. The only thing I need is something that occupies my time in a worthwhile way. No grades, no awards, just... make me feel something. Make me think something, TAKE ME SOMEWHERE. A feeling. Not a metric 💪🏿— Barry Jenkins (@BarryJenkins) September 8, 2018
