Green Room (Jeremy Saulnier – 2015) A-

Saulnier is now three for three with me. He is a competent filmmaker that crafts tight thrillers with smart characters. This one centers around an unknown punk rock band of twenty-somethings who see something they should not have seen at a gig they picked up somewhere in the remote woods of Oregon. The characters are smart and behave like real people. They make choices that probably most people would make if they are cooped up in a place with neo-Nazis outside their room trying to kill and get rid of them. The performances are very good especially Patrick Stewart as the leader of the gang and the late Anton Yelchin who plays one of the musicians.
