Be Kind Rewind

By XeroCube | June 25, 2008

“Be Kind, Rewind” by Michel Gondry was an imaginative adventure starring Mos Def, Jack Black, and Danny Glover. Being a fan of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and Jack Black, I was expecting an off the wall comedy explosion with a unique narrative style. I was not disappointed by the imagination, but a little underwhelmed with the comedy. It’s sad that Mos Def was completely overshadowed by Jack Black in this film.

Gondry shows his brilliance once again with his clever perspectives and artist design. The plot was somewhat flimsy and I never really became truly concerned about the relevance of Fats Waller.

However, I enjoyed the film. The sweded film concept was new to me and I enjoyed it. The “Rush Hour 2” sequence was highly entertaining. It looked like the actors had a blast making this movie, which made me enjoy the film all the more. This movie is definitely worth the time.
