Critic Reviews for MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A.
[Stephen] Loveridge's movie is a fantastic and kinetic fulfillment of Maya Arulpragasam's desire, back then, to be heard as more than an entertainer.
It's a film as compellingly all over the shop as its subject, even if it doesn't quite have her beat on stylistic verve and risk.
The director and subject struggle to say everything about globalism, fame, identity and whatever else comes into their heads, until the film is at risk of saying nothing much at all.
Contextualizes M.I.A.'s combustible mix of music and activism, where the search for identity continues between popstar and provocateur.
Stephen Loveridge fully understands that even the trifurcated title of his film may not be entirely equipped at capturing the extent of M.I.A.'s many-faceted identity.
