Movie Info

Initially discovered when the documentary filmmakers happen upon her at a homeless center, the lively and charismatic Bikini, brought to life in a whirlwind performance by Condola Rashad (of Showtime's "Billions"), soon becomes entrenched in the lives of the crew as they struggle to simultaneously help Bikini stay on her feet and complete their project. A self-described "Jesus with tits," Bikini yearns to use her master carpentry skills to build a new life for herself and the daughter that was taken away by the foster care system.

Critic Reviews for Bikini Moon

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

"Bikini" is parts mockumentary, satire, dark drama and, in at least one scene, bizarre fantasy. Often, the exceptional cast saves the project from exhaustion.

A patchy, intermittently captivating hodgepodge that begins promisingly before losing its narrative thread...

The film also explores the nature of truth and our perceptions of reality, capturing a feeling of cinema verite in its seemingly casual structure, gaps in the narrative, temporal leaps and rough sound and image.

Overall, I just think Bikini Moon makes a crucially weird creative choice that hurts it pretty severely. I'll be completely honest, I really don't understand why that ending needed to even happen.

If Bikini Moon were not such a decidedly independent and "small" movie, an Oscar nomination for Best Actress wouldn't be out of the question.
