Terrible - I Am Not a Witch review by JR

Spoiler Alert
09/04/2018

Part video installation, part conceptual art school project, a flimsy 'story', bonkers soundtrack of Vivaldi and drumbeats - it's an inauthentic mess.

Really good, especially for a debut feature - I Am Not a Witch review by MN

Spoiler Alert
18/04/2018

Thoroughly enjoyed this. It's a smart, has an offbeat sense of humour and is shot in quite a minimal style. I found it to be pretty refreshing and unpredictable. It wont be to everyone's taste but if a coming-of-age film about a young 'witch' in Nambia doesn't intrigue you then maybe give it a miss.

Interesting Fable about Witchcraft in Africa - I Am Not a Witch review by PB

Spoiler Alert
23/10/2018

Really enjoyed this film. A lot of thought had gone into the set and logistics. Authentic Africa and locals employed as actors. The central performance from the little girl was outstanding. Memorable music and photography. Interesting insights into how outsiders and misfits can be ostracized in society into formal roles.
