"Green Room" by Yojimbo

A pretentious noise band on a makeshift tour play gig in a remote compound populated by white supremacists and stumble upon a murder scene. Writer-director Jeremy Saulnier's follow up to Blue Ruin takes the formula of the horror film and applies it to a stranger in a strange land style thriller making for a kind of "Night Of The Living Skinheads". I very much enjoyed his debut and this similarly offbeat offering shares its theme of violence - even perpetrated by the"just" - as an ugly, grotesque, even seedy thing rather than something to be glorified. The result is not for the fainthearted and some of the scenes are guaranteed to make you wince, but it's a suitably tense and edgy affair as this assortment of everyman would-be misfits find themselves fighting for their...

Punk music is raw. This movie is rawer

"Things have gone south, no doubt.
But you know if you don't hand over that gun, it won't end well."

The advantage of watching a movie without any knowledge or awareness of what it's about initially, is that sometimes you can be pleasantly surprised. And that's what "Green Room" did. It surprised me. Either way, I thought it was already interesting because it was about the members of an obscure punk band called "The Ain't Rights". They travel across the U.S in a shabby looking Minivan, going from gig to gig. It's not exactly the comfortable life as that of a successful, richly paid rock-band. On the contrary. They look like undernourished, sleazy-looking bohemians. They don't even have enough money to buy fuel, so they can move on. I admit it. I envied t...

Green Room Runs Red With Artistic Violence

I have to hand it to director Jeremy Saulnier, this is a man who has turned violence into a kind of art form. I had high hopes after Blue Ruin and Green Room (not part of a color trilogy or anything) is a fantastic follow-up. Both films are kind of bleak and definitely violent, but instead of using a sledgehammer to get his point across, it's more like a scalpel - and it cuts deep.

Green Room follows a punk band a bit down on their luck (and funds) who take a gig in a shady joint in the Pacific Northwest that happens to house some white power people. Hey, at least they get paid - but just when they're about to leave, they stumble upon a horrific crime and suddenly find themselves held until the leader arrives to sort things out.

The band members are played by Anton Yelchin (in one o...

Nazis

"The Ain't Right", eine Post-Punk Band bestehend aus drei Jungs und einem Mädchen, haben kaum noch Geld und Benzin. Nun brauchen sie dringend einen Gig im Nordwesten der USA. In der Gegend, in der irgendwann einmal Grunge geboren wurde, ist es dreckig, öde und leer. Der äusserste Rand der USA. Anfangs tritt die Band noch hip und besserwisserisch auf. Sie beantworten die Fragen eines Journalisten nach ihren Lieblingssongs voller Arroganz. Bald aber werden sie den Auftritt des Grauens spielen müssen, in einem Club irgendwo im Wald vor einem Publikum aus Skinheads. Nach der Show werden sie Zeuge eines bestialischen Mordes und ab dem Moment, scheint es für sie kein Entkommen mehr aus dieser Hölle zu geben. Jeremy Saulnier verpasst dem Horrorkino eine realistische Note, ganz so als o...

INTENSE, Smart Thriller

'Green Room' is probably the most intense thriller I will see this year. This grim opus had me squirming in my seat and giving audible reactions to it's realistic violence. The movie holds back nothing in a relentless manner. It's not just gruesome for the sake of it. The gory moments are used to effectively insert a shock to the audience, being spaced out along the perfectly paced plot. We're not supposed to feel good about anyone dying on screen, no matter their character's stance. The whole point is to show the unnecessary nature of murder and it's messy entanglement with vengeance. It's more of an exploration of what constitutes right or wrong in an act of killing. The film doesn't go so deep into the subject, but it's a prominent theme throughout that is resolved in an unders...
