A THRILLING GANGSTER FILM IN THE VAIN OF BONNIE & CLYDE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF CUJO AND THE INCREDIBLE ALLIGATOR
FOR THE FIRST TIME ON BLU-RAY
"THE BEST SCENARIO EVER WRITTEN FOR AN EXPLOITATION FILM. […] A MIRACLE." QUENTIN TARANTINO
Abused by an abusive father, Polly Franklin decides to leave the family farm for Chicago. She will be in turn seamstress, dancer, prostitute and waitress, and will even spend time in prison. Her journey brings her closer to the world of the underworld of the 1930s, until the fateful day when Polly meets a certain John Dillinger...
A year before their collaboration on The Incredible Alligator , director Lewis Teague and screenwriter John Sayles tackle the gangster film. Despite a modest budget, their recreation of 1930s America commands respect. Red for a Ugly also stands out with its exclusively female point of view: the world of crime and the Great Depression is seen here through the eyes of Polly Franklin, the incredible Pamela Sue Martin ( Dynasty ). In a single role, she embodies all those who have been broken by the American dream. Somewhere between Bonnie & Clyde and Once upon a time in America , Red for a crook is available for the 1st time on Blu-ray™ in its new restoration!
