By Markos Papadatos     Oct 24, 2020 in Entertainment
"Cuck," directed by Rob Lambert, is an edgy thriller, whose subject matter is relevant and timely. Digital Journal has the scoop.
Lambert co-wrote the film with Joe Varkle. Ronnie (played by Zachary Ray Sherman) is a loner that lives in isolation, and Rob Lambert does a solid job shedding light on the adverse impact that solitude may have on people. Ronnie vlogs on the downfall of "real America."
He is subsequently stimulated by online extremism, and he buys an unregistered handgun and meets his alt-right idol, the charismatic Bill (Timothy V. Murphy). As his radicalism grows, a humiliating scandal tips his world into acts of violence.
Academy Award nominee Sally Kirkland is a revelation as Ronnie's controlling mother and delivers an extraordinary acting performance. Timothy V. Murphy is equally superb as Bill, where his performance runs the gamut as well.
