Dreadful but then...
9 June 2014 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

Is it me or does every other movie lately have blue in the title? BURNING BLUE, a film about the bizarre perversion and paranoia around gays in the military is actually the worst made film I have seen since WILD WOMEN OF WONGO. It's truly inept. Like a drama directed by Ed Wood. And it is even more rare to witness such bad performances. Simply dreadful. Bad in a not a fun or good way. And then the film feels about 20 years too late.

Then suddenly something happens in the last 10 minutes.

We jump 6 years ahead to a very short scene when Tammy Blanchard, delivering the only truly professional performance in the film, states "Now what will we do?" To which the lead says, " I don't know."

It was so staggering to hear this in an "issue" film. Everything falls apart. The main character is brave beyond measure but then all continues to slide. What will we do? I don't know. Never sounded more honest.
