Described as a slacker revenge movie, Simon Rumley’s latest feature Red White & Blue tracks the emotionally damaged Erica through the bars and beds of Austin, as she deals out her own brand of revenge, that is until things come to a head with potential saviour Nate and past victim Franki. I caught up with Simon to discuss the difficulties of casting demanding roles and how to avoid camera overheating when shooting at the height of an Austin summer.
Red White & Blue (2010)
A woman attracts the attention of a psychotic former Army interrogator and an emotionally fragile young man caring for his ailing mother.
It’s not a torture porn film, it was never intended to be. It has elements of torture porn because there is naked sex and there is torture, but most of the violence happens off camera.
