A cold, bleak and raw thriller which takes the viewer on a journey of uncertainty right up until the stunning dénouement. The harsh streets and tower blocks of Glasgow are the backdrop for this interestingly shot movie. Filmed using handheld cameras and natural light, Red Road is the first movie in a concept called "Advance Party" which follows a set of rules similar to the Dogma 95 method of avant-garde filmmaking. For a lot of people, what I've just wrote won't make a lot of sense but you need to be aware, Red Road is a gritty, unflinching and fairly explicit film dealing with regret, redemption and the all too familiar story of inner city urban decay. One of the best British films of the decade.

A Weak Protagonist

I thought it started off somewhat slow and hoped it gathered momentum as it went along, but it kept its pace from beginning to end. Most critics thought that this film is brilliant but I don't think it is because it's neither entertaining or artistically challenging. I feel like there was a big idea that was looming around but it was never fully realized because the story was too busy going in circles. It was hard for me to feel for the protagonist because she's not necessarily strong. We are forced to spend time with her because we see pretty much everything through her eyes, only to realize that she's a more manipulative person than she initially seems. Since its pace was slow, the film felt longer than absolutely necessary; as each minute passed by, I grew more and more restless. Still...
