Red Rocket at Real Art Ways

Red Rocket

Red Rocket isn’t like any other movie you’ve seen this year. Expect the taste of pink sparkle doughnuts to linger.” – Boston Globe

“Baker couldn’t have cast a better performer [than Rex] to encapsulate the world of near-success that Red Rocket evokes, a strange parallel dimension that serves as a cracked mirror to the mainstream pop culture of the period.” – ABC News (Australia)

“Raunchy, restless” – Chicago Tribune

“Freewheeling and kissed by the magic hour light like Baker’s previous movies, Red Rocket is among the filmmaker’s best works.” –

“This is vivid, real-life film-making, without the need of an epic budget.” – Guardian


The audacious new film from writer-director Sean Baker (The Florida Project, Tangerine), starring Simon Rex in a magnetic, live-wire performance, Red Rocket is a darkly funny and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him.
