Exit in Red.
Some people should remember that the world is geared to the individual, and so it is, "to each his own". I thought that Exit in Red was a thrilling and exciting movie. I loved the way they started in the middle, and went back and forth in the movie telling different parts until at last, we saw the whole stinking mess as it began and ended. The plot was believable, those two lovers had led a life of conning, why was it so incredible that she would be able to manipulate men as she wanted, that was the way she had grown up. Why couldn't a psychiatrist get bamboozled? They're just people!! Intelligence doesn't stop people from being stupid when it comes to predators. All types of people, from wealthy and rich, to wealthy and lonely have fallen for this scenario, jeez!! Don't you watch any of the shows on A and E, like Forensic Files. or Cold case files? It happens over and over. Smart seeming people getting hoodwinked by con artists. Ed was just lucky enough to have gotten out of it, with a bit of help from his lawyer. And don't fool yourself that cops are any less vindictive than Vollers was towards Ed. Some cops are sons of bitches, and I'm talking real life. How many stories have we heard of people serving years and years in prison, then being found innocent due to new technologies? Oh, it happens, buddy!! You are just closed minded, I, being an African-American, have heard of stories that make "Exit in Red" sound like real life, to me. Except that in the reals, the lawyer killed the two cops that were coming to get her client, and they ran away to Mexico, and didn't get caught until 6 or 7 years later. He was acquitted, and she went to prison. Sounded like drell, but it was true, and she was white and he was Latino!! Man, you must live in some fantasy world if that movie sounded boring to you. You just don't like one or the other of the actors, and that's hella okay. Yet, I am 58 years old, and let me tell you, if they made some movies out of the stories that I know to be true, you would turn the channel before they got to the "kicker" that made the story worth telling! I know that this is a "free-for-all", we all have the right to express our opinion, and I'm totally all for that, have at it. That's why I take this time to say, "I loved this movie", it's like that old T.V. show I used to watch when I was a much younger TV addict, "there are over a million stories in the Naked City, and this has been one of them". Well there are hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of movies out there, and honey, this was only one of them! So, you didn't like it. So what? Lots of us did.
