Kinetta ★★½

The first time we see one of the trio’s reenactments of violence, it feels like Yorgos discovering his method: taking extreme human behavior and breaking it down, zeroing in on each individual action, and then reconstructing it to reveal what’s really going on. There’s a clear fascination with this process, and a palpable sense of discovery.

And that’s really it, unfortunately; everything else feels aimless and impenetrable. The usual weird, intriguing details are floating about but they don’t cohere like they do in his other films. Even for Yorgos this raises more questions than it answers, none bigger than “why are we even here?”

In other words, not something to watch after having been up for almost twenty four hours, which I was. (Don’t ask.)
