Kimi, starring Zoë Kravitz, and directed by Steven Soderbergh, is a crime thriller released in 2022.
Angela (played by Zoë Kravitz) works at home correcting errors on the virtual assistant Kimi (something like Amazon’s Alexa) based on users’ audios. Until one day she hears a crime happening in the background of one of the audios.
The premise is unrealistic. The big tech guy fears being exposed for raping a woman, so he hires people to kill her. When, in reality, you can sexually assault women and be elected president. No need to kill.
Despite that, I like the film. It’s straightforward, no BS. Entertaining, it brings up relevant topics, like privacy and big tech, and with good acting from Zoë Kravitz.
I love the camera work when she gets out of the apartment for the first time. It reflects the deep discomfort she’s feeling in public.
I think Soderbergh is a little inconsistent, but I like this one and recommend it.
