From the director of ‘Blue Ruin’ comes this ultra-violent tale of a punk band falling prey to a gang of neo-nazis.
With his 2013 film ‘Blue Ruin’, Jeremy Saulnier crafted one of the most critically acclaimed revenge thrillers in recent memory. With ‘Green Room’, his latest exercise in edge of the seat suspense, Saulnier confirms he is one of the most significant names in modern genre filmmaking.
When an unsigned punk band, ‘The Ain’t Rights’, book an impromtu gig at a seedy dive bar frequented by neo- Nazis, they are expecting a tough night. But when they accidentally become witness to a murder, the band find themselves trapped in the venue’s green room, hunted down by a gang of thuggish mercenaries (fronted by a truly unsettling Patrick Stewart) determined to ensure they keep their mouths shut.
With the unmistakable air of exploitation movies past, ‘Green Room’ is a taut, vicious and gloriously violent shocker that wants to put its audience through the wringer. And it does so beautifully. Michael Blyth
