Hadn’t stopped thinking about this since I first watched it, so I finally revisited it!
Loved it even more this time around. The score and cinematography still might be my favorite aspects of this, it curates a thrilling and functional style. The direction and performances stood out to me a little more on this viewing to, sublime stuff. Hitchcock-influenced Soderbergh is too powerful.

“KIMI contains the narrative potential and impactful cinematography that movies by Steven Soderbergh (No Sudden Move) always have, but not even a superb performance from Zoë Kravitz (The Batman) can hide some issues with the developed themes.
Technologically, the proximity of this world to ours is frighteningly realistic, but the attempts to tackle agoraphobia and invasion of privacy aren’t all successful. The protagonist’s arc focuses on her ability to overcome past trauma, something that is mostly well-done.
However, the abrupt conclusion of the whole story not only lessens and simplifies PTSD but raises numerous plot-related logical questions, in addition to a moral one concerning stalking.
It will likely create some division within the general audience.”
Entertaining but a bit shallow
This was an entertaining hour and a half but its was missing something. There are some interesting characters, a nice enough plot line, a decent character reveal and an entertaining conclusion. Unfortunately, it felt a touch glossed over, simplified. A touch more complexity, a bit more depth would have made this something special. As it was, it’s still worth a watch, but it won’t wow you.
Mindless entertainment: the 90 min just flew by
As “Kimi” (2022 release; 89 min.) opens, the CEO of the company that makes Kimi, an Alexa-reminding device, is doing a TV interview from his Seattle-based home. We then are introduced to know Angela, who works as a voice stream interpreter at that company, but working remotely due to COVID-19. It’s not long before Angela picks up an audio file containing what appears to be an assault on a woman. At this point we are 10 min into the film.
Couple of comments: this is the latest from director Stephen Soderbergh, working from prolific David Koepp’s latest script. The movie is plot-heavy so the less said about how this plays out, the better. My overall sense as I was watching this is that I was reminded on multiple occasions of Alfred Hitchcock. “Rear View” immediately comes to mind, but also the recurring theme of a single person accidentally becoming involved in something big. Of course the other underlying theme is the perils of ever more intrusive technology in today’s society. Kudos to Zoe Kravitch for a great lead performance as Angela, as she caries the movie from beginning to end. Last but not least, the original score is by Cliff Martinez, the once super-prolific film composer wo is making his return after 4-5 years away. Bottom line: this turned out to be mindless entertainment and the hour and a half just flew by in no time.
“Kimi” premiered last night on HBO Max (meaning, it’s not even on HBO or HBO On Demand). Why such a low profile release, I have no idea. In any event, if you are in the mood for a decent thriller, I’d readily suggest you check this out, and draw your own conclusion.
