One of the best dystopian films I've seen
16 November 2016 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to get to see a screening of The White King and can't say enough about it. And given the current political mood here in the U.S., it is particularly relevant. I've seen plenty of dystopian films in my time, but The White King was refreshing in that directors Alex Helfrecht & Jorg Tittle chose to go against the typical non-stop violent, action genre to tell their story. As a matter of fact, the cinematography by Rene Richter and production design by Richard Bullock were some of the most beautiful I've seen. Not to mention the haunting original score by Joanna Bruzdowicz. Helfrecht and Tittel cast the film with some of the best British actors today— Jonathan Pryce, Fiona Shaw, Aggy Deyn and Greta Scacchi. 13 year old newcomer, Lorenzo Allchurch, given the task of carrying an entire film, skillfully rose to the occasion. I was actually moved to tears a few times throughout. I also appreciated the ending, which again, doesn't give into "what's expected." You can tell that the filmmakers had a vision and didn't compromise which is so refreshing. If you get the chance to see this film, I HIGHLY recommend you do.
