Movies in Frames: Red Dawn (1984)


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.
