MylesK’s review published on Letterboxd:
This one is so obviously inspired by Wong Kar-Wai that it could be presented as short Wong made and no one would blink twice.
This shows Jenkins mastery of the Wong Kar-Wai style, but doesn’t yet show his own unique voice.
I think this is reflected in the language he chose for the film Arabic. I think he wanted to do something foreign sounding since he is American and only experienced Wong films through subtitles.
Short rating: 3/4
