“That is not your lawn tiger”
I hope Netflix gets more original content like this. Macon Blair is a carbon copy of his mentor Jeremy Saulinier. That is okay with me. Movies like Green Room and Blue Ruin have brought a dark humor and an abrupt violence to the thriller genre and I love it.
The cast is great, the story is tight and ultimately very simple, camera work is fresh and interesting, even the color choices feed into the character development and motivations. Who hasn’t seen someone do something that is just so wrong and inconsiderate and thought, “Why do people have to be such asssholes.”
Check it out on Netflix today. This is where I hope the service will find its bread and butter, with original content that is fresh and different.
