Red Rocket

Red Rocket ★★★★½

It’s basically Naked by Mike Leigh, but instead of Thatcher’s broken Britain it’s Trump’s (soon to be) asinine America, and instead of David Thewlis as an intriguing narcissistic perverted scumbag sabotaging people’s lives, it’s Simon Rex as an intriguing narcissistic perverted scumbag sabotaging people’s lives. Loved the shit out of it. Simon Baker has this incredible gift for making sparse areas look like dream worlds, another gem added to his body of work examining the dark corners of wilfully overlooked American subcultures. His best piece to date
