Kedi 1.0 stars

Movie poster


A feature-length alternative to a YouTube kitty video. It doesn’t matter if one’s a cat person or a dog person; the film person inside all of us knows full well that just because humankind has reached a point in history where anyone with a phone can make a movie doesn’t mean they have to. This latest example of “shoot now, figure it out later” digital craftsmanship finds Turkish documentarian Ceyda Torun dogging a half-dozen or so felines with a Steadi(cat)cam through the streets of Istanbul, hoping to find a hook — or at least cough up a golden furball or two. He doesn’t. The result is a wisp of a film that barely sticks to the screen. The 80 minutes would be better spent at home scratching your best friends belly fur or tossing around a catnip mouse. Better yet, rent any of the Benji films to brush up on how to tell a story from a housepet’s POV.
