It's notable for speaking the truth; Most of them wouldn't give the others the light of day in front of their normal schoolfriends. It's also up to your interpretation how honest they actually were with eachother. The movie almost perfectly portrays the social boundries school kids face, and still makes people who watch it ask eachother, "Which one did you identify with?". That's why I think this movie is timeless.
First of all, I would encourage people curious about the movie to watch it as it's very difficult to review without mildly spoiling some unexpected bits.
Red State is extremely confrontational and somewhat disquieting. Some will say it changes focus and is unsure what kind of movie it wants to be, but I appreciated the unexpected turns and it kept me on my toes. Michael Parks delivered a minblowing performance, and I can't honestly say any other actors brought it…
It wasn't what I wanted. It wasn't quite what I expected. It wasn't how I imagined it could have been. But, it's what we got, and it's not bad.
To quote someone I encountered on the Internet;
"You know, you can continue crying about something that won't be changed, or learn to appreciate the work that was done in the time allowed."
That sums up how I feel about this movie. It's an interpretation. A well made one... and I'm just along for the ride.
