Sew the Winter to My Skin (2018)
Critic Reviews for Sew the Winter to My Skin
While the project of infusing a local legend with grandly cinematic, mythic status is a worthy one, the film can't quite get out of its own way, and the result is incoherently at odds with itself...
Qubeka's largely wordless, diffuse, time-scrambled narrative feels willfully confusing at first, but it rewards patient viewers with its sensory riches and hypnotic rhythms.
It's in-your-face angry filmmaking that arises from decades-old wellsprings of injustice and pain. No dialogue? It's the unspoken language of tomorrow, for those who can understand it.
Qubeka has turned the lack of dialogue into a salient message about reportage and has made an enthralling edge-of-the-seat thriller while he was at it.
Qubeka displays instincts for both political allusion and big-screen entertainment.
