A truly incredible film
8 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see Kensho on the big screen where it won Best Feature Film at the festival I attended. I was absolutely amazed at what I saw and experienced in that theatre. Kensho is the kind of film that you rarely see these days — an original, engaging and powerful story that's both entertaining and thought-provoking. It's subversively funny, emotionally resonant, inspiring, and endlessly creative in its micro-budget wizardry.

The film explores themes of fulfillment, life-purpose, social conscience, sex, death, and consciousness expansion all in the context of the cultural phenomenon that is New York City.

The acting is also superb. Raider and Ronayne lead a cast of accomplished, theatre-trained actors that disappear into characters that are both relatable and fascinating to watch. The cinematography is gorgeous and highlights Manhattan in a mesmerizing, Koyaanisqatsi-like way.

As writer/director, Raider is a nuanced and visionary film artist who conjures comparison to Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze. The choices he and his stellar team made from production design to special effects to soundtrack compliment a thrilling and beautiful story of hope and interconnectivity.

I was totally lifted to a new place watching Kensho. The film gets my highest recommendation.
