and the sequel, "Hail Mary" https://www.amzn.com/1684334888
Available on Amazon.
Happily for for us all, even while sequestered in our houses there is available to us on our screens an overabundance of thrilling cinematic fare to whisk us away for a couple of hours; and especially happily for those with HBO Max is the recent release of an out-of-this world psychological thriller called "Kimi."
"Kimi" could be described as high-tech Hitchcockian. In fact fellow film buffs will recognize the movie as the latest iteration of that 1954 Hitchcock classic "Rear Window,"
The human protagonist in this "Rear Window" descendant is a Kimi-corrector named Angela, portrayed in a knock-out performance by Zoë Kravitz.
Her agoraphobia has been amplified by the COVID pandemic, and so she spends her days looking out her window at her neighbors,
Otherwise she's swallowing medications, obsessively pumping hand sanitizer, brushing and re-brushing her teeth, and doing what appears to be the numbingly boring job of listening to and diagnosing piles of mundane recordings of people trying to get their Kimis to understand them,
But then Angela comes across a distorted Kimi recording that she listens and re-listens to until she's convinced that the sounds she's hearing are of a woman being assaulted.
I've watched "Kimi," twice so far. With the latest world news reports I'll probably have to go watch it again.
