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.
While Qubeka's visual aesthetic is strong...Sew the Winter to my Skin never feels as impactful as the man whose myth it is telling.
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.
Meaningful and often a tad restrained, Qubeka presents Kepe as the subject of a meditative western, a fitting package for a man pursued through a wild frontier by white colonialists.
It's beautifully shot and much of its captivating power rests on that alone, but the director's emphasis on aesthetics often robs the characters of depth.
