Dueling Critics

thumbs-up

“With ‘Kimi,’ director Steven Soderbergh and screenwriter David Koepp have dazzlingly updated ‘Rear Window’ for the work-from-home age: their film puts a thrillingly contemporary spin on a vintage paranoia-drenched premise…It’s hard to watch ‘Kimi’ and not pine for the times when films this stylish, gripping and brisk were the work of major studios.”
thumbs-up

“The most glaring problem here, and the one hardest to explain, is Soderbergh’s failure to elicit any warmth or charm from Zoë Kravitz…In a curious decision, Kravitz chooses to make her character entirely unpleasant, nasty to everyone with whom she interacts.”
