GREEN ROOM (2016)
Alexandria-raised filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier follows up his breakout hit BLUE RUIN with this intense thriller. After a long and not particularly successful tour, punk band The Ain't Rights are ready to head home to the northern Virginia 'burbs, but accept one last gig at a club in backwoods Oregon. Bad news: it's a skinhead hangout, run by charismatic drug kingpin Patrick Stewart. Even worse news: the band members discover a body backstage, are taken prisoner and now must fight for their lives. Anton Yelchin and Alia Shawkat shine as the desperate punks; Imogen Poots is a young racist with whom they become uneasy allies. DIR/SCR Jeremy Saulnier; PROD Neil Kopp, Victor Moyers, Anish Savjani. U.S., 2016, color, 95 min. RATED R
