★★★★★ review by KB Burke on Letterboxd
Excellently written. Well shot, using the camera of a iPhone 6s. Despite using mostly unknown actors, it featured great performances. S/O to former KC Chiefs running back turned actor Thomas Jones. I am used to Cherry’s work as a music video director (I.e. The Foreign Exchange’s “Authenticity”). It’s nice to see him make the transition to feature film. Definitely worth a watch.
All that and a shoutout to KU? ROCK CHALK!!!
★★★½ review by Sean Kelly on Letterboxd
From a technical point of view, 9 Rides can be considered an achievement, since it's a very well shot film, made entirely at night with iPhones. However, the bulk of the film takes place within the driver's car, so most shots are static views from the dashboard, backseat, or side window. However, despite being a relatively simple film, 9 Rides still tells an interesting story, which leads to a somewhat unexpected conclusion.
