2022-02-13: Kimi


Watched Kimi, based on the review in The Guardian. Since I agree with the review, and this Benjamin Lee writes reviews better than I can, there's not much to add. I too would give it 3 or 4 stars, because it's enjoyable, well-made, does what it intends to do, and doesn't try to be more than it is. Films like this feel "transactional"; it feels like we, or the company that purchased the film, have entered into an agreement with the director and s/he has lived up to the agreement and handed over the goods. He (Soderbergh) and the cast may have given it their all, worked really hard, or just had a good time - it doesn't matter - as the product has been delivered in perfect condition.
