Here’s my Movies in Frames submission for Red Dawn. On my last viewing of the film, I was struck by the unwavering intensity of the performances. The determination and commitment of the young cast is what makes the Wolverines seem utterly convincing. I feel their loss and am saddened as they fall. It is an odd sensation, feeling a sense of patriotism for a country I’ve only been to once. My love for American cinema has instilled me with a kind of phantom patriotism, a vicarious love of all things red, white and blue.
