Red, White & Blue

When was the last time you watched a movie that got so intense you had to look away, not because of some gratuitously graphic gore, but because of the sheer intensity of the story? Don’t be surprised if you find yourself covering you eyes at the climax of this dark story of how three lives intersect with devastating results. The acting, particularly from Noah Taylor as a troubled Iraq war veteran and Amanda Fuller as a promiscuous young woman with an agenda, is mesmerizing. Giving away the twists and turns that writer/director Simon Rumley takes you through would spoil the fun (and the fear): see it for yourself.
