I absolutely agree with you about "Moonlight." Also, I agree with you about Mr. and Mrs. Loving being "best heroes." Thanks for this intelligent commentary.

100% agree about Moonlight. I also liked OJ: Made in America. I thought it was much better than the mini-series. And I really liked Kubo and the Two Strings. I thought it was the most imaginative animated movie I've seen since Ratatouille.
