Red Rocket

Post by YetAnotherHobbist » Sat Jan 08, 2022 5:01 pm

Had a chance to watch "Red Rocket" over X-mas break. I'd say it was worth seeing - though I am not sure why some many reviewers called it a comedy. The main character would appear in a dictionary next to "selfish", or "conceited" - very much an anti-hero. The movie felt to me more like watching a train wreck - which may be the kind of attention movies want to generate, but in this case you sort of know there won't be a light at the end of the tunnel...
I did not like the happy at all - it felt like the director said, "ok, time's up!" - but I think I would recommend it, as long a people go in expecting a somewhat depressing experience.
