Quick Review: Green Room


Holy machete! Green Room is now playing in theaters nationwide. Do not miss your chance to see this blood-boiler on the big screen. Here’s my quick review from Fantastic Fest 2015:

Film 8- Green Room
Director- Jeremy Saulnier
Cast- Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Macon Blair, Alia Shawkat, Patrick Stewart

Jeremy Saulnier is the real deal. His follow up to Blue Ruin ratchets up the tension and puts the audience in a chokehold. Green Room places a young punk band in the wrong place at the wrong time, up against a gang of cutthroat neo-Nazis led by Patrick Stewart. The setting is claustrophobic and the actors convey the trauma well. Excellent casting across the board.

The movie is hardcore and superbly executed. Saulnier has a knack for making ultra-violent action scenes that feel highly-realistic. You can’t take your eyes away and you might forget to breathe. The movie is a rush and the crowd was transfixed throughout. It was the most popular film at Fantastic Fest, receiving the most votes in the Audience Award category, and it’s firmly in my top 3 of the fest. Green Room filled me with adrenaline and reminded me how intense movies can be.
