Revenge is a dish best served cold. Proving that feuds are alive and well in the modern era, Blue Ruin gives us the story of a man seeking vengeance for his parents' murder. The day the killer is released, he exacts his revenge. His plan goes awry, however, and it puts the rest of his family in danger. Realizing the only way to make sure they are safe is to take out the entire family - he sets off on a new course, even at the price of his own life. Blue Ruin is bleak, mostly dialogue-free and often bloody. Shades of the Coen Brothers abound and it packs a punch. Can't wait to see the follow-up to this one.
