  • Summary: Erica lives rent-free in the local co-op, but spends her nights trawling the bars and beds of Austin. Damaged, emotionally withdrawn, never really connecting with anyone, and sleeping with multiple men is just what she does… until she meets the older and mysterious Nate working in a hardware store, but with an “honorable discharge” from Iraq. Despite his quiet air of danger, Nate’s the only guy who doesn’t seem to want to get her into bed at the first opportunity, and the two form a hesitant bond. But one of Erica’s casual sexual encounters is about to bite back. Franki is a young, hot-headed wannabe rock star trying to make it big. Looking after a sick mother and estranged from his long-term girlfriend, he “shared” Erica with his buddies one drunken night. A shocking twist of fate is all it takes to throw his already crazy world into a spin, and in Franki’s eyes there is only one person to blame... (IFC Films) Expand

    This horror-slasher-thriller-tragi-romance is certainly going to leave some squeamish, but there's no denying that this is high-quality filmmaking.

    Red White & Blue proves the director a bona fide storyteller with more tools in his arsenal than shock and awe.

    The pacing and performances are more organic than in most horror.

    Rumley has assembled a fine cast; there's not a false step in the film, and while obviously this isn't a film for everyone, these are characters that we come to know, respect, and fall hard for, doomed or not.

    The movie doesn't work. Mainly because the writer and/or director doesn't understand people. The characters are all over the place and don't even come close to existing in real life. A rocker who is a loving son and has a great mother but who becomes a total nut? Umm no. No one like this exists in real life. They spend a big chunk of the movie showing the rockers life and his relationship with his mom. Why? So we can have a deeper understanding of who he is and why he did what he did. First a person like that would do what he did and second of all WE DONT NEED TO KNOW. Who gives a **** Get on with the story. Then we have the Nympho who has a total understanding of herself and why she does what she does. Umm no. People who act out don't understand themselves - that's what they act out. Poor character development and bad pacing make the movie hard to watch. Expand

    No mystery or suspense. The first half of the movie is a nicely directed character study. The second half, an uncompelling mediocre series of uncreative violence scenes. Leaves you wanting your 90 minutes back. Expand
