Red Rocket

Red Rocket ★★★★

Red Rocket has Sean Baker's possibly most unsympathetic character but it doesn't take away from the humor. In fact, I'd argue it makes this Baker's funniest film.

Tangerine and The Florida Project are still better because I think Baker has way more empathy for those characters. Here, he still has some sympathy for some of the characters here but definitely not the lead, Mikey.

Sean Baker proves himself to be the master of the modern cinéma-vérité.

Bye, bye, bye.
