Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★★

The definition of what James Baldwin referred to as “sensuality”. This movie held my feet to the fire and demanded that I feel it. There are great messages between the lines, and the film never speaks when it can communicate visually. It understands, with subtlety and cleverness, what words can’t say. This makes certain frames true works of high art. Catch it in theaters, please.
