What's a faggot?
Juan: A faggot is... a word used to make gay people feel bad.
Little: Am I a faggot?
Juan: No. You're not a faggot. You can be gay, but you don't have to let nobody call you a faggot.
At around 1h 04m 30s, when Chiron is entering the school and opens the second door pushing the emergency handle, the scene is instantly cut to show the room from the inside to see him enter, but, when he does enter, the door can clearly be seen being pulled, not pushed.
There are no opening credits.
