Critic Reviews for The White King
The only elements of The White King that prevent it from being an unmitigated failure are a striking visual aesthetic and solid production values. However, these do not prevent Alex Helfrecht and Jorg Tittel's venture being one to miss.
The White King is a bold and brave piece of filmmaking that embraces film as an incomplete form. The ideas are presented in such a way that they require the engagement of the audience.
The story exudes natural confidence in its execution of that tension. It knows exactly when to pull you in and push you back.
Audience Reviews for The White King
We see a new world order that brings its society back to the soil, damning technology, applauding the simple life. This totalitarian world parallels Hitler's pride, where the community stands for hours in grocery lines, eat bread and watered soup if they don't have connections with the higher ups, and wear their only 2 or 3 outfits if they haven't contributed to the recent revolution. Twelve-year-old Djata, who tells the story, gets a glimpse of a technically advanced wealthy world full of crowded highways and gleaming skyscrapers, where food and wealth are in abundance. I find it interesting where the technical world is put in a higher light. What a switch!
