Critic Reviews for Kid-Thing
[A] minimalist, rule-breaking exercise in head-scratching human behavior.
Zellner handles the material delicately, treating her apparent psychosis like an ill-fated by-product of growing up. This strange yet wistful dynamic suggests Harmony Korine adapting Judy Blume.
The film is, if nothing else, an interesting meditation on how a child who grows up without guidance might react to a situation that requires judgment.
Aguirre is a find-she has none of the precociousness of the typical screen tween-but the movie's magical-realist elements don't jibe with the unstudied naturalism of her performance.
Like Days of Heaven on paint fumes, a languid, occasionally hilarious, occasionally poetic coming-of-age story.
Audience Reviews for Kid-Thing
I have officially HAD IT with slowly paced, poorly shot indie films about misanthropic sociopaths and/or annoying solipsists. KID-THING is an irritating example of the former. Even at a mere 83 minutes, it's so slowly paced that I was constantly checking my watch.
