Kali's Vibe

Brilliantly played by Lizzy Cooper Davis, the title character is a highly competent social worker who's trying to deal with the emotional repercussions of having discarded her irrepressible but unfaithful lesbian lover (Phalana Tiller). Director Shari Carpenter has a strong feel for color, motion, and characterization, which pay off in such fantastic imagery as the whirring movement of two expressively painted lovers. Kali succumbs to the romantic entreaties of a male colleague (Charles Malik Whitfield), a conversion that seems sexually and emotionally false, yet Davis's easy charm and Whitfield's expert timing make the characters hard to shake. This may not have the courage of its convictions, but it offers some funny, touching, and woundingly accurate observations about love and desire. 94 min.
