Editorial Reviews

Erica (Amanda Fuller) drifts through the bars of Austin going from one sexual partner to another, never connecting emotionally. That changes when she meets Nate (Noah Taylor, "Shine," "Almost Famous"), a discharged Iraqi vet who is more interested in being Erica's friend than her latest conquest. A strong bond of friendship develops between them, but Erica's background intrudes in the form of Franki (Marc Senter), a wannabe rock star whose sudden presence sets the stage for a shocking conclusion. With Red, White & Blue, director Simon Rumley ( The Living and the Dead ) crafts a formidable "trip through the darkest corners of the American psyche" (Anton Bitel, Little White Lies).

Customer Reviews

One of the best revenge dramas I have ever seen.
Andres C. Salama
This of course makes the darker elements of this film all the more tragic.
nemo
This isn't a bad movie by any means and it does have a lot going for it.

What makes "Red White & Blue" great is that it is a tale of revenge that understands. It understands its characters, their situations, and the horror that results. Without giving much of the plot away (less said the better), it tells the tale of multiple people and how their lives intertwine in a dark way. Each of the main characters has his or her own story, and this film lets us into each one with intelligence and care. There isn't anyone in here who has been untouched by some kind of emotional pain or damage, and the well written script gives insight into each one in such a way that there isn't a person we don't feel for or understand on some level. This of course makes the darker elements of this film all the more tragic. It's not a film for the squeamish, graphically violent at times, but at the same time it shows the perfect level of restraint in what it does show, resulting in the Hitchock effect of us imagining the worst. Amanda Fuller's excellent turn as Erica is painful to watch in its realism, as she adeptly carries vulnerable hurt so clearly lurking beneath a hardened surface. And Noah Taylor, given the most difficult character to play as he walks a tightrope line, is outstanding as Nate, managing to evoke both sympathy and horror in alternating seconds. It's a haunting film that builds a bed of meditative sadness ultimately burned in cringing horror. It won't soon leave you, and packs an emotional punch not unlike "I Saw the Devil" (very different film, but a good companion piece). Brutal, touching, and tragic.

Rarely is a film able to be both enticing and disturbing. There have been some pretty messed up films the past few years like Antichrist and A Serbian Film. Other than Antichrist having gorgeous cinematography, genital mutilation is probably what you'll take away from it while A Serbian Film shows you the affects it could have on someone forced to make a snuff film against their will. I Saw the Devil is a great example of being both brutal in content and absolutely engaging thanks to fantastic performances and a well-thought-out revenge plot. Now imagine having the last act of a film containing subject matter as unnerving as the violence in I Saw the Devil but leaving a little more to your imagination while the first two acts remind you of something straight out of an Alejandro González Iñárritu film and you've got Red White & Blue in a nutshell.

When Red White & Blue first gets going, you probably won't really know what to think. Some chick is just running around having sex with a handful of various men every night? So what? But it's deeper than that. Once Nate (Noah Taylor) enters the picture, things begin to get a little more interesting. Does Nate really seem like the type of guy to get honorably discharged from the army, get an offer for a CIA job, and spend his time thinking it over while working at a home improvement store? You'll have to be the judge of that yourself. His admiration for Erica (Amanda Fuller) is one of the driving factors of the film though. Then Franki (Marc Senter) works his way into the equation, as well. He thought he was having a one-night stand with Erica that no one would ever know about, but it turned into something that would haunt him for the rest of his life.

Format: DVD
Since I am only the second person to review this film, it's clear that it's not very well known. I had never heard of it when I stumbled upon it, and, while watching it, was surprised by a number of things: first and foremost, how good it is, how unpredictable the story is, and also how horribly grim it ends up being.

The film first introduces the audience to Erica, a promiscuous, damaged woman with seemingly no social connections. She is seen engaging in random sexual encounters, rebuffing any kind of real warmth and affection, until she takes a job at a hardware store and tentatively starts a friendship with fellow employee and veteran Nate. This part of the film is really rather sweet, and it seems like it's going to be the kind of story where two damaged people are redeemed by love.

The film then shifts its focus to one of the characters first introduced in the beginning of the film, when Erica was "partying" with several members of a local rock band. Franki, the lead singer, is trying to balance both his band's early success with his mother's cancer and having to work dead end jobs. Unfortunately, during this section of the film, Franki's life takes a huge turn for the worse when both his health and that of his mother's are severely threatened, and the character's meltdown leads to a series of tragic events. Franki's storyline is then tied back to that of Erica and Nate, and it's clear that, instead of a series of vignettes about characters who only meet peripherally, there is really just one story at play here.

To give much more away would be a crime, because one of the best things about the film is that it offers constant surprises.
