Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: With the same brand of realist irony the Coens used to cool down Blood Simple, writer-director Jeremy Saulnier slows the genre's heartbeat to gripping effect. – Keith Staskiewicz, Entertainment Weekly, Jan 5, 2015

Fresh: Saulnier spills a lot of blood, but he's an extraordinarily responsible and appealing craftsman. – David Denby, New Yorker, May 5, 2014

Fresh: The filmmaker works with economy and has a knack for creating a sense of foreboding, which is good because the plot is simply a working out of the old saw that violence begets violence. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, May 1, 2014

Fresh: As an exercise in cinematic style, "Blue Ruin" is well worth seeing. – Peter Keough, Boston Globe, May 1, 2014

Down Right Fantastic

COMPLETELY lives up to the hype. The best independent film I've seen all year, and the best thriller I've seen in a while. People will be talking about this film for years to come.


Superb in every way. A must see, don't hesitate. As good of an American thriller as has ever been made.


A tense, fascinating, and emotional roller coaster. One of the best revenge movies I've ever seen highly recommend. Defiantly check it out.
