Under the tutelage of an eccentric hippie restaurateur and her messianic self-help guru, a young man sets out to master the occult magic of Enceladism in an effort to destroy the cancer that's killing his partner.
A middle-American teenage boy who is affected by 9/11, terrorism, and the war in Iraq becomes involved in an isolated high school altercation that escalates into a hate crime that shocks the entire nation.
I really enjoyed this director's last movie, Dead Birds, so I had high expectations for this one. Hollywood lives to disappoint though and Red Sands is a complete letdown.
The setting is intriguing, the situation (a released djinn) promising, but the director doesn't deliver. Like a wounded snake the film drags its slow length along to an utterly predictable ending. The action is sparse, the suspense even sparser. The actors try their damnedest to inject some energy into this thing but like a balloon with a puncture they can huff and puff for all their might but it won't inflate.
All in all a sorry show. Let's hope the director can learn by the mistakes made here for we know he's capable of a lot better. 4/10
