Rushlights Reviews
The Vertical Entertainment VOD release of the unrated director's cut from the "Based on True Events" 2013 Josh Henderson (of the TNT "Dallas" series) noir-thriller "Rushlights" implies that streaming isn't just for previously released and not-ready-for-primetime material. This production implies that this format could also be used to demonstrate people the video the studio suits don't want you to view. In cases like this, it in all probability is the full extent with the violence in some scenes.

"Rushlights" writer/director Antoni Stutz states in the press materials with this release that "this cut from the film is nearer to what I (Stutz) had in mind initially. Its [sic] edgier. 'The gloves are off' if you'd prefer." We love; ok, perform.

The next YouTube clip with the "Rushlights" trailer shows the way it uses the actors and setting to good effect.

Stutz commences with the classic noir set-up of experiencing Henderson's Billy meet fellow loser Sarah at the diner where she works as a waitress until something better occurs. Mutual flirting begats a hot-and-heavy R-rated lust scene, which begats panicked night-time contact from Sarah to Billy.

The get the booty over here call concerns the latest death with the roommate of Sarah. This begats Billy and Sarah going to a small Texas town to perpetuate a scheme to gather a big inheritance to which they lack a rightful claim.

Both leads play their parts well; the portrayal of Billy seems to be an audition piece for Henderson in reference to his subsequent role as the grown-up John Ross Ewing on "Dallas."

This make an effort to pull the wool within the eyes from the (presumed) sheep-ranching community triggers the bulk of the previously mentioned elimination of the gloves. The amount of bloodletting as well as the creative manners where Satutz achieves this would satisfy every fan of the modern form of thriller. A climatic scene near the end particularly does not disappoint in this regard.

Stutz further excels in adding twists that keep your audience guessing. Any noir fan recognizes that deceit permeates the Billy-Sarah relationship, nevertheless the reveals in regards to this are unexpected. The same thing goes to a lesser extent concerning the sibling rivalry between local sheriff Bob Brogden (whom Beau Bridges perfectly portrays) and younger brother attorney Cameron (whom Aidan Quinn nicely plays).

Stutz additionally borrows in the horror film genre in providing several false endings before finally putting everything to rest. The seemingly final carnage is the start of end.
