Critic Reviews for Kicks
Tipping, who also co-wrote the polished script, captures this unique mix of adolescent anxiety, urban decay and societal friction in a remarkably confident fashion ...
The motif of a faceless, imaginary spaceman following the boy around is overly precious, but what does work is Tipping's focus on sensitive boys hardening in reaction to their father figures (or lack thereof).
Tipping throws all sorts of tricks at the screen, most of which don't work.
Tipping's admittedly artful style is relatively ambiguous, focusing mostly on cheap visceral thrills, to the point where it's impossible to glean what he thinks about the depths to which Brandon will go.
Kicks is not without its flaws, but even the flaws show Tipping's willingness to take risks, to go for the big gesture and to go for it honestly.
