Red, White & Blue


Film follows the cool, emotionless Erica, who dives into bed with any man she meets. When she is offered a job in a DIY store in Austin, she discovers the kindness of strangers, but also the gruesome shadowy side of it.


“Red, White & Blue” is very hard to describe. I’m not sure exactly why they call it “Red, White, & Blue”, except the protagonist wears a cut-off jean jacket with an American flag on the back. The story is about a woman that that will sleep with anybody, will kiss no one, and will never stay overnight. We figure out by the end of the movie why she behaves that way. There is a sociopath that befriends her, and there is a rock star that ends up in a foursome with her, whose mother is dying of cancer. If this all sounds incredibly appealing to you, you might like this movie. If this sounds rather dreary and confused, then you may want to skip it. It’s not a bad movie, it just goes on too long, and it’s fairly predictable and it’s incredibly violent, like stomach turning violent. Two stars.
