A must see film...tense...uncomfortable...memorable,
This review is from: Red Road [DVD]  (DVD)
I saw this film at the cinema recently and thoroughly recommend it - but it won't be to everyone's taste.
The storyline is gripping, and leaves you guessing until the very end, and then the whole film makes sense and you understand why Jackie (played with startling honesty and skill by Kate Dickie) behaves they way she does - sort of; certainly you end up feeling gut-wrenching sympathy for her. I won't give the story away, and hope none of the future reviewers do either.
This film makes you feel uncomfortable all the way through, like you are an imposter; spying on the characters. I never been made to feel like that by a film before, and I was on the edge of my seat, tense. It is filmed, mostly, in the Dogme 95 style.
It is not an easy film to watch , and is a bit slow to get going, but it is worth every second of your time. You will think about this film long after it has finished; for weeks or months even...
