Critic Reviews for Red Rocket
The film's ambivalence is its strength -- leaving us room to be seduced by its deluded anti-hero, and to share his entrancement with his sleazy American dream.
I miss quieter movies with their slow-build character studies. Watching director Sean Baker's Red Rocket, a portrait of fictional aging porn actor Mikey Saber (Simon Rex), was a reminder of how great those can be.
[Director Sean Baker] has a real feel for the underside of life that's not compromising or demeaning.
I think we're at the point where we can say there is such a thing as a "Sean Baker Film."
"Red Rocket" isn't like any other movie you've seen this year. Expect the taste of pink sparkle doughnuts to linger.
