Film Review - Monsoon (2019) 6.5/10
"MONSOON, for what it is worth, is a minimalistic cinematic prose about transiting, Kit is constantly seen on the move whether in Saigon or Hanoi (provenance of his parentage), by scooters or on a train, contemplating everything that flows in front of his eyes. In his drab service apartment, or a restaurant with a view, his eyes wander towards the landscape or cityscape, that he knows he must acculturate, yet there are missing pieces there, sustained by Golding's faintly stressed aloofness and an innocuous air of ordinariness, the overwhelming sense of displacement gels mildly if none too spectacularly."
