One of the most underrated films of 2010, British genre filmmaker Simon Rumley’s devastating and brutal Red, White & Blue follows a trio of interconnected lost souls, drifting through Austin, TX, without much purpose and on direct paths to tragedy. The saddest one of them all is Erica, played with an endearing detachment by cutie Amanda Fuller.
For Erica, life is about little more than hopping from one guy’s bed to another, sometimes with multiple sex partners. Thus, Fuller gets naked in the movie quite often, yet none of Rumley’s sexual scenes are the least bit titillating. He, Fuller, and the film itself never lose sight of the fact that Erica’s numerous carnal conquests are sad, not hot, the meaningless time-killers of a girl who’s too emotionally comatose to care.
