Red Rocket

Red Rocket ★★★★

a charismatic and resourceful dirtbag huckster pragmatically exploits every relationship he's ever had and threatens to destroy his hometown (alongside every life he deems worthless in it) to maybe be able to afford to live in california for a few months. of course sean baker's version of a troubling 70s character study is one overdosed on nsync and pornhub. would make for a good pairing with Good Time. just real vile, scuzzy, bottom-feeder money mindset hours in this and genuinely one of the funniest and most beautiful-looking movies i've seen this year. incredible zooms, anamorphic frames and texas location work but most importantly: multiple surprise full frontal gags.
