Green Room

The director of cult hit Blue Ruin casts Patrick Stewart as a ruthless neo-Nazi in this confined-space thriller, targeting an innocent indie punk band who saw something they can't unsee.

Down on their luck rockers The Ain’t Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon. What seems a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see.

Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club’s depraved owner, Darcy (Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise. But while Darcy and his henchmen think the band will be easy to get rid of, The Ain’t Rights prove themselves much more cunning and capable than anyone expected, turning the tables on their unsuspecting captors and setting the stage for the ultimate life-or-death showdown.

Characterization and emotional investment are in disappointingly short supply, while crucial tension is permitted to dissipate in an anti-climactic final third.

Saulnier’s ability to take a well-trodden road and fill it with grisly surprises is quite something.

If you like your movies – and your music – nasty, brutish and short, but never gratuitous, then Green Room is for you.

Way more than crass exploitation. It's a B movie with an art-house core.

It's all put together with great skill, but never quite manages to deliver more than its modest, stripped-back story will allow.

As action, it's niftily executed, the suspense neatly built, and the shocks expectedly surprising.

A riotous, rough-hewn and rousing punk reinvention of ’70s-style grindhouse exploitation-with-a-brain-cinema.

Ok, maybe that's a not so subtle spoiler. This we gem is not for the squeamish, but I guess the beauty of cinema is you can always look away (then risk a look back). Its a simple story, tightly told and consistently great performances throughout, especially Macon Blair. If you're looking for the love child of the 'The Warriors' (1979), then I reckon...

Let Him Bleed Green Room is one of A24’s latest release and as much as it sounds like the sequel to their Oscar Nominated movie Room, it couldn’t be more different.

Driven by desperation, a punk rock band accepted a gig in a Neo-Nazi occupied bar. But when one of them accidentally witnessed a horrific crime, chaos ensued as the band tries to fight off a group of maniacal skinheads. Easily the best thing about this movie is Patrick Stewart. We often see him as the wheelchair riding leader of the Superhero group The...
