Red Dot is a semi-contained, high-concept thriller with a strong reveal. Directed by Swedish filmmaker Alain Darborg, it follows Nadja (Nanna Blondell) and David (Anastasios Soulis) on a hiking trip intended to renew their deteriorating relationship. What starts as an idyllic getaway to snowy Sweden takes a foreboding turn, and soon the expectant parents are fleeing for their lives from an unknown shooter in the unforgiving wilderness. With a red dot perpetually trained on them, they do their best to dodge an untimely death but can’t escape several smaller yet still gruesome misfortunes. The resulting tension reaches a climax as the reveal identifies the killer and adds surprising context to the couple’s characters. A high-stakes take on fighting for family, the film ponders whether it’s better or worse to meet your fate face-to-face, that is, to exist in ignorant bliss or to understand your potential murderer’s malice.
