Kimi: All The Different Hair Colours Can’t Distract From The Blatant Plagiarism


Written by Luke Barnes


An agoraphobic tech worker, played by Zoe Kravitz, discovers a murder and becomes tangled up in the latest blatant copy of Rear Window.

If I had to describe this film in a sentence it would be a rehash of Rear Window told through the lens of something like The Woman In The Window, which is also incredibly similar to Rear Window, mixed with a dash of covid to date it immediately.

In that vein, I have written before about how I think it is far too early for films about covid, it is still on going and is still very raw for a lot of people, as such seeing it in films is off putting. People go to the cinema to escape the world around them not to just live it through someone else’s eyes.

A lot of the praise for this film is being heaped on Kravitz, somewhat unduly I would say. Kravitz is fine don’t get me wrong, but I wouldn’t say this is an awards worthy performance or even her best. Though that is not necessarily Kravitz fault as the character she is playing is a cliché through and through.

Overall, this one really did little for me, it was far too familiar.


It was short

It was watchable


It feels too familiar

Keep covid out of films

Kravitz’s character is a cliché
