Black Kite (2017)
Critic Reviews for Black Kite
A sometimes touching, sometimes frustrating mix of good instincts and better intentions, Black Kite wants to be the most inspiring film you'll see all year.
The performances are fine, including Hamid Noorzay as the starry-eyed boy and Haji Gul Aser as the adult Arian. The outcome is resoundingly heartbreaking.
Certainly, multihyphenate Qayumi deserves credit for his deft use of archival footage and animation, which provide useful context and historical background.
Weaving live footage and animation into Arian's story, Qayumi's politically charged narrative is almost too stark. But perhaps that is the point.
The central drama is deadeningly flat, a chessboard of mono-dimensional ciphers arranged across a schematic grid of good and evil.
