Cut Print Film provides a glowing review of Nicholas Britell’s score to Moonlight, out now on Lakeshore Records! Read the full review here. Director Barry Jenkins collaborated with Nicholas early on to develop the sonic lyricism of the score, which applied Chopped and Screwed music (a genre of Southern hip-hop) to a classical score which was present throughout the three chapters of the film.
