Kiki by director Sara Jordenö has a fantastic subject matter with strong, fascinating and beautiful human beings involved. The movie lets you get to know some of them in bits and pieces, some (Chi Chi) more than others. It puts into perspective some mainstream issues in the LGBTQ community like same sex marriage versus the very real and more urgent issues that they face daily. Comparisons to Paris is Burning are unavoidable but the film is able to stand on its own. I would have very much liked if the film didn't meander and had a clearer structure and thesis statement, however. The film was more like a collage of the Kiki scene, with some parts being more compelling than others.
