Dir: Jeremy Saulnier
USA 2015, 94 mins
It seems American director Jeremy Saulnier can do no wrong. Following up his widely lauded 2013 film Blue Ruin, he now has another inevitable hit on his hands with Green Room. Set in the backwoods of Oregon, a punk band on the road find themselves besieged by neo-Nazis at a private club after they discover a murdered body they shouldn’t have seen. Club owner/Gruppenführer Darcy (played superbly by Patrick Stewart) directs his team of ‘red laces’ to hunt the band members down, but will they make it out alive? With a gruesomely gory Tarantino-esque finale, this is another cult classic in the making, and cements Saulnier’s status in the pantheon of contemporary genre filmmakers.
