Kicks is a film about a nerd who deals with bullies that have an affinity for footwear. The trailer gives me a 2015 DOPE vibe, but with a darker structure. I’m feeling director Justin Tippings choice of surreal visuals with young actor Jahking Guilroy as Brandon, and his imaginary friend, Mr. Apollo Astronaut. I’ve mentioned in other posts, but September seems to be the goto month for Black films for the past 3 years. Don’t know what’s going on there, but as long as the films look interesting like Kicks, I’ll hold my complaints.
