    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★

    My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

    ★★★★½

    Green Room is Saulnier's transition from primary colours to secondary colours.

    This time he experiments with a palette of natural and artificial greens, reflecting the true and artificial nature of the characters portrayed in the film. A common thread between this and Blue Ruin is how Saulnier exposes his characters. At first, they seem to have a tough exterior, but traumatic events in the film reveal their true and vulnerable selves.

    The Ain't Rights are no exception, a punk band…
