Khane-ye doust kodjast? (1987)

By the late great Abbas Kiarostami, who made quite a few other excellent fictional films featuring boy actors, including The Experience, A Wedding Suit, The Breaktime and The Bread and Alley, as well as the superb documentary Homework.

The Kid (1921)

For my money some of the masterpieces of the silent era are Fritz Lang's Metropolis, G.W. Pabst's Pandora's Box and Diary of a Lost Girl, D. W. Griffith's Broken Blossoms, King Vidor's The Crowd and Josef von Sternberg's The Docks of New York. Chaplin is different: he has one foot in an older tradition, comes trailing clouds of music-hall, and you kind of either like that or not. And in my view some of his films aren't as good as they are often claimed to be: for instance, Modern Times is far surpassed by À nous la liberté. But the early shorts in which Chaplin's character wreaks havoc on film sets -- His New Job, Behind the Screen, A Film Johnnie, The Masquerader -- are fascinating and great fun, The Cure is impeccably funny and the polished unrequited love drama The Bank shows us Chaplin learning to make the audience feel for him, a power he'd use to the full in his feature masterpieces City Lights, The Gold Rush and The Kid. And of The Kid we can also say that it comes by its sentiment honestly: Chaplin was sent to an orphanage as a young child and found the experience lastingly traumatic, and this echoes through The Kid. It has therefore been called Chaplin's most personal film.

Kiddo (2010)

Meandering, but very perceptive in spots.

Killa (2014)

A wonderful depiction of boys bonding with each other and having fun together. Superb cinematography by Avinash Arun, reminded me of Wojciech Szepel's cinematography for Mein Erstes Wunder. The language is Marathi. Also see The Journey, a good film about forbidden love in rural Kerala that's a bit reminiscent of the deservedly popular Sri Lankan films Gamperaliya and Golu Hadawatha by Lester James Peries and Gehenu Lamai by Sumitra Peries.

The King of Kings (1927)

The 1905 film The Life and Passion of Jesus Christ, by Ferdinand Zecca of the groundbreaking Histoire d'un crime and Les victimes de l'alcoolisme, is basically a filmed passion play; this has more in common with the 1914 Italian silent historical epic Cabiria, where they invented the tracking shot. No life-of-Christ film can touch Pier Paolo Pasolini's marvellous The Gospel According to Matthew, and as religious films go, this one isn't up to, say, Au hasard Balthasar, Sant Tukaram, Prince of Egypt or indeed Lotte Reiniger's The Star of Bethlehem. On its own terms, however, it's a major achievement: big, kitschy, over-the-top entertainment using the best technology of its time.

King of the Hill (1993)

Based on A. E. Hotchner's autobiographical novel. Beautiful colours -- though Soderbergh has said he'd shoot it a completely different way today -- and a fine, relaxed lead performance from Jesse Bradford.

The Kings of Appletown (2007)

OK rural adventure in which the twin boy stars play cousins, with Dylan's hair cropped and dyed brown. Or else it's a wig. This must have been filmed around the same time as Suite Life season 3; it's interesting to see them tackle something a bit more substantial than the one-note silliness of their Suite Life characters.

Kinoglaz (1924)

Propaganda piece, exuberantly innovative, very interesting prelude to the unmissable Man with a Movie Camera. Could make a good dual watch with A Bronx Morning.

Kiseki (2011)

Touching and well done but slightly improbable. Doesn't quite measure up to Koreeda's best film, the superb Still Walking. Also see Happy Hour.

Kisses (2008)

A little reminiscent of Darren Thornton's Frankie, a superb short film about a 15-year-old father-to-be, but not as good. Still very watchable.

Kit Kittredge: An American Girl (2008)

Decent spinoff of the popular, and expensive, American Girl Doll line, from back when the dolls' stories were about history.
