Review: Nine Days (2021)

An amazing film, a unique and specific vision, hard to believe it is Edson Oda’s directorial debut. Highly recommended.

I reviewed for Ebert.

    Wow, this seems like it would have an extraordinarily high level of difficulty to pull off well. I’ll keep an eye out, glad you reviewed!

      Jessie – this is very much *not my kind of thing* – in fact, I hate *this kind of thing* – and the reviews out of Sundance were irritating, like “this movie will make you rethink your world view” – really overblown language. I admit I went into it already cranky about this supposedly “inspiring” movie. lol I’m such a brat.

      But it was done so well – and so calmly and deliberately – setting up this world, introducing these characters – emotion wasn’t really prioritized, or at least not pushed to the foreground. It worked in a subtler way. It really did it for me! I don’t know if I am going to re-think my world view – lol – but I really loved it. and loved the cast!
