“Saw this at the 2023 Sundance Film Festivalu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Kimu0026#39;s Videou0026quot; is a documentary that follows trail of beloved video store films from New York City to Sicily. The history of Kimu0026#39;s Video is pretty interesting especially those who love collecting physical media. Directed by David Redmon and Ashley Sabin, while the film never feels boring, itu0026#39;s unfortunate the documentary goes all over the place.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe presentation is pretty good and there are pretty good archival footages used showing the history of Kimu0026#39;s Video and how itu0026#39;s legacy has changed over the years. There are interviews from participants that were very interesting to listen and observe. However, the documentary gets lost as the film tends to focus way too much on the personals side of the main filmmaker rather than focusing on the history and facts behind Kimu0026#39;s Video.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s understandable where the filmmakers are trying to approach but the main structure doesnu0026#39;t feel focused. It goes from an documentary filled with facts and historical ideas to an personal journey that feels a bit full of itself and not self-aware. u0026quot;Kimu0026#39;s Videou0026quot; was never boring but it was annoying to see the uneven structure of the documentary and discussions that felt a little unsatisfied.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall, itu0026#39;s not bad but itu0026#39;s pretty underwhelming.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRating: C+”
