Red Rocket

Red Rocket ★★★★

I always love a good crash zoom, and this has many! I also like how this only used one song in different versions kinda like The Long Goodbye did.

I dug this a lot more than Florida Project, probably because it was a full-on comedy and had a far more satisfying conclusion. There’s an art to making movies about morally terrible protagonists that aren’t obnoxious and this gets it right. All the TikTok kids clutching their pearls about Licorice Pizza will shit bricks if they see this.
