The Kite Runner ★½

I thought Forster deserved another chance after his stylish handling of STAY, but a case for his complete hacktitude must be made after seeing THE KITE RUNNER. This is a film with nary a good decision made on the directing level, with especially strong demerits deserved for the CG kite set-pieces, but I doubt the source material was worthy either because of the unbelivably dumb coincidence of the third act.
