  • [A] visionary fable drenched with vibrancy and lyricism.

    April 10, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Viewers may worry that Bazawule's starkly gorgeous pictures aren't going to add up to anything, but Burial satisfies in prosaic as well as poetic terms, supplying an end that makes sense of its beginning.

    March 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • In its bold and limpid lyricism, the film is both an anguished delight in itself and an exemplar of dramatic freedom that should stand as a model for some filmmakers and a reproach to others.

    March 29, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Wonderfully atmospheric and culturally enriching, "The Burial of Kojo" truly qualifies as a spellbinding experience.

    March 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "The Burial of Kojo" is a near-virtuoso work, a feast of emotion, nuance and beauty, and a startling feature directing debut.
