Review: The Republic (2017)
The Republic (2017, dir. James N. Kienitz Wilkins)
- This film contributes to a future where film is a more diverse and interesting ecosystem. This is important.
- It is visually unique and aurally surprising. It shows great range and ventures beyond the sounds and atmosphere of real life. Listen for the doorbells. Listen for the self-conscious reading styles of the performers.
- It treats its libertarian outsiders and e-cigarette enthusiasts with seriousness. This is important.
- Nour Mobarak’s narration is reserved and incredible.
