Red Rocket

Red Rocket ★★★½

As firmly ingrained in its fringe-living geographic particulars as The Florida Project with a character so purposefully unflattering (to put it lightly) that the presumed inevitability of some form of comeuppance is obscured by just how much this guy gets away with. In this sense we're graced with what's essentially just a string of events perpetuated by this manipulative, scum sucking hustler/groomer/sociopath that cater solely to his self-gratification that are frequently very entertaining, mainly because his skill set's comprised entirely of unsavory, cash grab bullshit that speaks volumes about Rex's conviction in playing this brand of human from front to back. Baker's an aesthete through and through as we all know, and this comes forth throughout, it's just a matter of how much of Mikey you can take, really.
