Red State (2011)

After a couple days away from some movies, I decided to get back into movie viewing with something a bit different. I originally thought about watching a documentary, maybe something on the Illuminati or New World Order, but instead, I decided on a flick that I have wanted to watch for some time, the somewhat controversial, Red State from Kevin Smith.
Plot/ Set in Middle America, a group of teens receive an online invitation for sex, though they soon encounter fundamentalists with a much more sinister agenda.
While this may not come across as a popular flick for Kevin Smith fans, an interesting movie touches upon some controversial topics and does it well. Yes, if you believe this is totally fiction, you are wrong. Sure, there are spots that are a bit incoherent and disjointed, but overall it has a solid feel. The acting is good and believable, the cinematography is sound and the scripting works and is full of life. In the end, this one is a fascinating flick that grabs you and brings you in. Of course, it is not for everyone as some of the population does not want to observe or experience the realities of society that exist around us.
