Red Flag is a wry, sardonic look at love, friendship, depression and failure told from the vantage point of a struggling filmmaker who's lost, wandering around the Southern United States on a screening tour that's largely attended by elderly cinefiles. Karpovsky offers us a small, humble yet whip smart and hilarious little dirge that's a mixture between The Puffy Couch and The Death of Ivan Ilyich. It features a cameos from a plethora of indie actors and filmmakers and is shot in a minimal, naturalistic way that accentuates the beauty and simplicity of the story and it's characters. There are clearly autobiographical themes throughout the film, and it's an enlightening and honest portrayal of a starving artist who's struggling with many issues in his day or day life.
