Necktie Youth Movie Poster
”This is the suburbs with the sound turned off”

After admittedly initially panning ‘Necktie Youth’ based solely on the trailer, a friend insisted that I actually watch the film, and so I did. Wasn’t long into watching it that I felt more than a little embarrassed , just because once I engaged with it on its own terms, instead of what at the time I thought a young, Black South African filmmaker should've been interested in, I found it to be a really fucking amazing film. It’s sensitive, yet also irreverent, highly idiosyncratic, & just a beautiful existential character study, man (but I also can’t help but read it as a subversive coming-of-age film?). It’s easily one of my favourite South African films and I highly recommend seeing it if you haven’t already.
