Critic Reviews for Liberty Kid
[Director] Chaiken has a keen eye and ear for street-level realism and an evident love of the city's as-yet-ungentrified fringes.
There is no shortage of films about the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but there is a lack of good ones. The low-budget indie Liberty Kid, produced by downtown auteur Larry Fessenden, is one of those that succeeds.
Evident throughout is Chaiken's ability to patiently build a scene without fanfare or artifice.
The strong performances and Chaiken's vivid NYC locations, lend the film unexpected resonance.
Even though Liberty Kid is a small film, much of it is deeply poignant; it enhances our compassion for all the ghosts of Sept. 11.
Chaiken's subtle narrative touch, along with the exceptionally strong performances of leads Al Thompson and Kareem Savinon, gives this one a rare emotional pull.
Audience Reviews for Liberty Kid
Well acted, but the film is all build-up, and no conclusion. Ultimately, it is a story about nothing. I liked it, but then left feeling unsatisfied at the end, as if I'd wasted two hours of my life.
