Storyline

Pierre Hunter (Anton Yelchin), a bartender with unyielding optimism, returns to his tiny hometown after his parents' death. When he falls for the enigmatic Stella (Zooey Deschanel), Pierre is unknowingly pulled into a cat-and-mouse game that involves a duffel bag full of cash, a haphazard yet determined criminal (John Hawkes), and a mystery that will determine all of their fates. With Alia Shawkat, Frank Langella, Aubrey Plaza, and Ciarán Hinds. Zachary Sluser's film, based on the novel by Tom Drury, is a contemporary fable about the ways we struggle to control time and fate in a possibly predetermined universe.

Red Velvet
3 August 2019 | by frukukSee all my reviews

While the subject matter is a little reminiscent of David Lynch's Blue Velvet (1986), this film just doesn't come together. It's all frosting/icing on a very bland and unappetising base.

The basic flaws: Pierre (Anton Yelchin) is too weak and unsympathetic a character; Shane (John Hawkes) is laughably unthreatening. If you don't care what happens to Pierre and if you don't consider Shane to be a menacing character, then why invest in this?
