One thing Kiki does really well is show how these dance competitions are an organizational structure for kids who might otherwise slip through the cracks.
"Kiki" shows us a group of brave and beautiful souls for whom the struggle is, unfortunately, probably about to get even harder.
[An] adroit documentary on the new generation of those in the ballroom and voguing scenes ...
It's an honest examination of the powers, and limits, of subcultures and small communities-and how quickly things can change for better or worse within them.
"Kiki" often casts a rueful gaze, but it's also exuberant and alive, and never despairing.
It explodes with energy, thanks in part to rattlesnake-taut dance tracks from MikeQ and ballroom DJ crew Qween Beat, but mostly from the Kiki kids themselves.
There is a bittersweet quality to Kiki, with the strength and beauty of those in the scene always offset by the ignorance or fear of those outside it.
Kiki features a cast of eloquent, engaging characters struggling against a broad range of socio, economic, and political obstacles, but the way that filmmaker Jordenö engages with the context and history of these issues lacks depth.
You will be hard-pressed to find another film that celebrates gender and sexual expression the way KIKI does.
Skipping orientation and outside commentary, [Sara] Jordeno jumps into a scene that provides more than a place for highly stylized Vogue dancing and outre costumes. To those in it, it's also a home.
Kiki serves as a reminder that in parts of American and Western society, minorities are still rejected from the mainstream on the basis of dated, racist, and homophobic prejudices.
If for no other reason, you should see Kiki to understand the complexity of subcultures in America and how they are extracted from consistently.
