Acclaimed director Sean Baker (Tangerine, The Florida Project) once again trains his restless camera on an unforgettable protagonist in this biting dark comedy.
“Shrewd, gritty and unfailingly hilarious, Red Rocket is among filmmaker Sean Baker’s best works.” – Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com
Mikey, a wildly narcissistic former porn star fallen on hard times, has returned from L.A. to his depressed, postindustrial hometown of Texas City, reconnecting with his skeptical, drug-dependent estranged wife and mother-in-law, and using his wily charms to ingratiate himself into a community of people he couldn’t care less about. As played by a brilliantly cast Simon Rex (a star MTV VJ in the ’90s), Mikey is a charismatic force of nature—and destruction—who exploits the innocence and goodwill of everyone around him. Pointedly set against the backdrop of the 2016 presidential election, Red Rocket is an aptly steamed-up depiction of contemporary America as a playground for hustlers and con men. An A24 release. (Dir. by Sean Baker, 2021, USA, 128 mins., Rated R)
