Buckle up. Free your mind. It’s a crazy trip of a film that leaves you wondering in places what the fuck is going on.
Savvas D. Michael is an obvious talent and enjoys all aspects of filmmaking, as on his two projects to date de Michael oversees all aspects of production in writing, producing and directing. But while his debut feature, Smoking Guns, was a straight-up genre piece, the same cannot be said of RED RAGE. Indeed, it is fair to say this film will dodge any expectations you have, and it would be reductive to try and pin the film in in any one genre. This sprawling, imaginative and funny film has some genuinely entertaining moments. Buckle up. Free your mind. It’s a crazy trip of a film that leaves you wondering in places what the fuck is going on. But while it is refreshing to see a creative attempt to reinvigorate the British gangster film, the finished product doesn’t quite deliver on all de Michael’s ambitions.
