  • Green Room

    Green Room 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 19 May, 2016

    Like Jeff Nichols and JC Chandor, Saulnier feels like a director who probably has a truly great film in his future somewhere. With Green Room, he isn't quite there yet but it clearly illustrates the compelling and distinctively brutal vision of someone who thinks guys like Carpenter and Fincher are just too darn sentimental.
    Also be forewarned that this film is shockingly, horrifically violent, so anyone with a squeamish disposition should definitely sit this one out.

  • Our Kind of Traitor

    Our Kind of Traitor 2016

    ★★★ Watched 14 May, 2016

    The likeable cast just about carry this perfunctorily-directed, by-the-numbers thriller. An enjoyable enough way to spend an evening if you've nothing else on.

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 11 May, 2016

    Just as good (maybe better) on third viewing.
    Also I am now 100% convinced that Rey is a Kenobi.
