Red State: A Good One # 136
Arguably Kevin Smith's best film from a technical standpoint, Red State is hard to categorize. Not exactly a horror film, not exactly a cop movie, not exactly a Kevin Smith film. I wouldn't exactly call it enjoyable, either, although it's well shot, acted, written and directed. Those looking for a horror film will be disappointed. Those looking for a typical Kevin Smith movie will be disappointed. Someone looking for a thought-provoking blend of all of those things and hoping to see a director experiment may find it to be a satisfying experience, but one you may not want to do twice.
I watched it on Netflix Instant Streaming.
