Jeremy Saulnier

Blue Ruin – Jeremy Saulnier (2013)

A slow and minimalist thriller in which a man goes after the killer of his parents after the killer is released. The story is slightly different from what you may expect, but it contains no real surprises.

The atmosphere is bleak, moody and descent.

Not a masterpiece, but a good film to watch some time.

Green Room – Jeremy Saulnier (2015)

A punk group has a concert gone wrong, almost nobody showed up. The organiser sets up another concert, so the band drives to the other location. This appears to be a remote location with a different audience, more skinheads. The band brilliantly opens with the Dead Kennedy’s song against a certain kind of punks. The audience likes the rest of the set better.

After the show one of the members sees something that he had better not, so the band is directed back to the dressing room waiting for the police. The people of the venue have other ideas with the band than they hoped though.

“Green Room” has an alright story, but overall is a not too strong thriller that tries to lean towards horror.
