Saulnier is definitely on my to watch list. I loved Blue Ruin and think Hold the Dark looks pretty good. Green Room however carried some serious buzz with it and I must say I was a little disappointed. Its beautifully shot but the road from beginning to end hits some questionable patches which hold the piece up from being great.
I love Patrick Stewart as much as anyone else but I also was underwhelmed at his heavily hyped role as a skinhead bigwig trying to clean up after his goons create a bloody mess in front of a travelling punk rock band. Any of you guys wonder why William Hurt got so much props for his quick role in A History of Violence? Kinda the same deal with Stewart here for me. Oh well. Saulnier still knows how to fuck people up on film and there was a whole lot of that type of fun here that kept me dialed in.
