A solipsistic filmmaker takes his independent film on tour. Hoping to escape the pain of his recent breakup, he stumbles into a twisting constellation of fear, sex, and tortured illumination. A tragicomedy about death and marriage, RED FLAG unfurls across six sates, four broken souls, and one very elusive bird.

    The Playlist - by Katie Walsh
    It’s a fun, laugh-out-loud dark comedy, and proves that Alex Karpovsky and crew have made their mark. more

    The A.V. Club - by Scott Tobias
    Modest, personal, and nicely proportioned, Red Flag resembles one of Hong Sang-soo’s self-reflexive doodles about relationships and filmmaking — "Oki’s Movie," in particular — and it wisely doesn’t take too big a bite. more

    Time Out New York - by Keith Uhlich
    Though often funny, there’s a reverse narcissism in the way Karpovsky wallows in his “character’s” off-putting flaws. more

    Slant Magazine - by Nick McCarthy
    It surprisingly abandons its obvious meta elements and unfolds as a straightforward road-trip flick, opting for an exhibition of self-loathing rather than self-reflexivity. more

    Variety - by Peter Debruge
    There's a reason creepy character actors seldom play lead, and Karpovsky's amusingly off-kilter quality is better suited to the background, while Prediger (as the stranger he desperately wants to ditch, lest his ex-g.f. discover his infidelity) has the makings of an indie star. ...

    The New York Times - by Rachel Saltz
    If only Red Flag were funnier and tighter and had a sharper idea about what it means to blur the lines between self-interrogation and self-absorption. As it is, the movie throws off too few sparks. ...
