Red White & Blue
Red White & Blue (2010)

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.

It is a tragic story of some power with echoes of Hubert Selby Jr's novel Last Exit to Brooklyn.

It displays some talent but it's difficult to see precisely where it is going.

Time Out

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.

Stylishly directed and superbly written, this is a provocative, powerfully emotional drama-slash-revenge-horror with terrific performances...

Dim the lights and raise the heat for this sputtering Texas noir, liberally spiced with strip-malls and pool-halls.
