Red Rocket

Red Rocket ★★★½

I had watched four of Sean Baker movies and I'm really not a fan, I'm the opposite. But I still gave him a try fifth time, I don't regret it. This movie seems more serious than to be labelled comedy in anyway. In fact the raw atmosphere of chaos that baker creates is just brilliant, a family that is all out of sorts but is functional as well, mother and daughter that are doing some pretty heavy drugs together, what an odd and honest picture. We see Mikey and his jobless pornstar wife, they are picture perfect, the real deal. More than anything this is a close investigation of a very shady character, so what's not to like
