Rebelle

Kim Nguyen Canada, 2012

Loz Loory's rating of the film War Witch

Bravo! Economy of dialogue, brilliant plot, uniform tone, stupendous acting, and 90 minutes short. So great to see the story of a child soldier from a girl's point of view. The original title of "Rebelle" is better than "War Witch," as she is a rebel in so many senses of the word. Devastating when she wears the Abercrombie t-shirt: help from the West only reaches her via empty capitalist status signifiers.
