November 9, 2019
It runs out of ideas before it calls it quits.

This is quite a smart, little independent film... It's sad, touching, and provocative.

Tantalizingly bounces your comfort level between intimacy and voyeurism.

[The] script isn't groundbreaking, but first-time feature director and co-writer Matt Kane and co-writer Marc Underhill present some compelling enough questions for audiences to ponder about the ethics of AI.

It's a heartfelt examination of aging and relationships that emphasizes character depth over narrative gimmicks.

Previously responsible for a number of hit-or-miss shorts, Mathew Kane is making his feature debut. You wouldn't know it from watching. His ideas aren't new, but he finds new and mature ways of updating them.

[A] beautifully written and acted film.

Even with the short running time, writer-director Matt Kane and cowriter Marc Underhill exhaust most of their ideas early. But Kind is touching throughout, as a man who just needs to feel wanted.

Though Felix ultimately learns that virtual perfection isn't all it's cracked up to be, Auggie raises chilling, perpetually timely questions about what men really want from women.
September 19, 2019
Auggie is purposefully grim in style and execution, moving at a snail's pace and seemingly photographed in drab shades of grey. Although its running time is a mere 81 minutes, the film seems to last forever.

Kane gets most of it right, paying close attention to needy hearts and starved minds, while offering Kind one of the most complex roles of his career.

The self-same story could have been told without any science fiction.

It's a strong feature-length debut from actor Matt Kane, and I suspect - given how good this film is - you'll be hearing more about him in the future.
