Red White & Blue
Red, White and Blue is a powerful, visceral and oddly touching thriller/slash movie. It's also very sophisticated storytelling with temporal shifts and three protagonist characters who function as both the killer and the prey.

Erica (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER's Amanda Fuller) is a tough, troubled nymphomaniac with wounds across her soul. For Erica, sleeping with multiple men forms the core of her life, until she meets the mysterious Iraq vet Nate (THE PROPOSITION's Noah Taylor). Despite his quiet air of danger, Nate's the only guy who doesn't immediately want to… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Without giving away too much, I offer two words of advice: Brace yourself."
‑ David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
"Influences of helmers like Larry Clark and Wes Craven are pronounced: The first half is pure montage, foregoing slick visuals so the characters' personalities, coupled with a disturbing stillness, take root."
‑ Jay Weissberg, Variety
"It is a tragic story of some power with echoes of Hubert Selby Jr's novel Last Exit to Brooklyn."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Everyone comes out of the story badly, not least the audience. We should have felt shaken and stirred; we merely feel poured over rocks and impaled with cocktail sticks."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"Not a horror film, but an undeniably horrifying one, it depicts believable characters in credibly desperate situations, with none of the usual genre comforts on hand to halt the path to damnation."
‑ Matt Glasby, Total Film
"An engrossing -- and profoundly distressing -- tale of random connection and specific revenge."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Restraint pays dividends for British writer/director Simon Rumley in this devastating and demanding revenge tragedy set in Austin, Texas."
‑ Sloan Freer, Radio Times
"It displays some talent but it's difficult to see precisely where it is going."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Manages a shocking and provocative first half here, before veering into brutal revenge-torture for a shocking and merely excessive second one."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"I found it rather slow and hard to like, and by the time the real horror kicked in, I was paralyzed by sickening sensory overload."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"This Amerindie's horror elements are actually its least interesting aspects; you wish that British director Simon Rumley had stuck with that first half's beguiling look at a new, weird Americana and left the exploitation trappings to lesser filmmakers."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"Stylishly directed and superbly written, this is a provocative, powerfully emotional drama-slash-revenge-horror with terrific performances..."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Dim the lights and raise the heat for this sputtering Texas noir, liberally spiced with strip-malls and pool-halls."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"It's not exactly going to make you want to salute the flag any time soon, but its delivery is as slick as its subject matter is grim."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"A ferocious and fascinating piece of independent filmmaking."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
