The Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker 2023 Movie Review

If you are new to the story yiu nay find this Documentary mildly interesting, Kai/Caleb is 5he main character yet this documentary fails to show anything much more than whats out there.

What it does show is a lot of TV people trying to act all humble abd aloof to what was clear as day from the start. They saw a potential money maker and attempted to reel in that cash cow to epic failure.

I think its pretty clear Kai had problems wether it be mental or just as a vulnerable roamer. He obviously hated the society he lived in and valued his idea of freedom, probably pretty close to freedom as anyone in the modern world can possibly get.

Like many homeless/Roamers there is always going to be vulnerable moments and times of insecurity. It seems he liked a drink and smoked weed but was pretty functional. You could see he was very disillusioned with society through his music, social media posts, the answers he gave to questions etc.

Of course he killed a man, nobody can say either way if this was in defence or if it was reactionary through being in an uncomfortable/ horrible or truly demeaning situation. Only one person alive knows this and thats Kai, here is nothing out there to suggest he is a cold blooded murderer however but he definitely killed a man.

People talk on this documentary saying things like I didn’t think he was violent e.t.c. Its a weird thing to say as A. Virtually everyone is capable of violence, its part of our nature and its how we protect ourselves and others if needed B. The people who were saying this stuff literally took a man who used violence to protect someone else and wanted to put him on a tv show and parade around the man of the hr. Smashing a hatchet over someones head is violence, it may have saved someones life though.

There was a tiny bit of talk about the victim from some neighbours or friends. There was one tiny clip of Kai in prison talking about the trial.

The majority was a lot of jibber jabber from shark like TV people who looked like they were trying to clear their names or try and redeem their guilt but in reality they just wanted to sell a show to Netflix for some cash.

When you take this and compare it to other documentaries that have been on Netflix there is light years in between. This is a bit of light fluff that was less about the victims and more about the media vultures who came swooping, even then it wasnt interesting it was just a bit moronic and sad.

This entire story should be a moral one and the blurred lines that accompany that. There was scope to really explore themes such as violence as a form of defence, how we idolise people we deem to be heroes who are violent. How we deal we these things but learn to constrain our actions and why we do that.
