Ratings & Reviews

  1. Alex Flores's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Less known director and quite a gem.

  2. Holly McGratten's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Great example of using facial emotions and environmental symbolism over dialogue expression. It's a twisted hot mess of a film which mixes people from different worlds and puts them up against each other

  3. NicoIlGermanico's rating of the film Blue Ruin

  4. Didonne's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Je tire, tu tires, il tire, nous tirons : la vengeance est un plat qui se mange saignant ! A partir d'une intrigue somme toute banale, un bon film dépouillé et somme toute trash. L'Amérique s'y trouve dépeinte avec ses arsenaux et ses secrets planqués dans les placards dans la lignée des frères Cohen. Très réussi.

  5. Ludovic72's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    L'influence des frères Coen (notamment de leurs premiers films des années 80) est à peu près indéniable, mais Jeremy Saulnier ne fait pas dans le plagiat paresseux. Sa mise en scène précise, sa lenteur bien calculée, ainsi que l'entretien d'un certain mystère, induisent de bout en bout une tension et une incertitude très prenantes. Les révélations finales rendent toute l'affaire particulièrement glauque et absurde…

  6. Axel's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    So many good choices were taken in this movie. Love the slow pace. Brilliant.

  7. elenagallen's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Too depressing and overly emotional of a revenge thriller. A well crafted film with a beautifully unusual tempo that I get too sympathetic with -- which totally ruins my chances of having fun.

  13. Quesera,sera's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    woaa, nice revenge, but also realistic thinking and intuition, and all seemed naturally make sense... TOP

  14. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Revenge accomplished. Feel better?

  15. FISCHER's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Second long métrage d'un metteur en scène fortement prometteur qui bouscule allègrement les genres et les spectateurs avec une certaine efficacité, augurant pour l'avenir de solides et sanguinolentes réalisations pourvu que la reconnaissance critique actuelle ne lui monte pas trop à la tête ni au garrot... www.cinefiches.com

  16. Nabil Hamzaki's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    "The one with the gun gets to tell the truth."

  17. V.S. Luoma-aho's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Well crafted and good ambience at times. Kind of goes nowhere, I liked the hoboing at the beginning more than the thriller-stuff itself.

  18. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    The movie loses a lot of what made it interesting once a best friend character is introduced, but the prolonged tension that comes from seeing the protagonist continually fuck up in the front half kept this viewer invested.

  19. Ryan Swen's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Emptiness has to have some substance.

  20. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Jeremy Saulnier is a director who continues to impress me and this revenge story is a captivating, well taut thriller that I wish we had more of!

  21. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Complete thrill ride from start to finish and a great central performance by Macon Blair, who nails the awkward and petrified character, pulled into this 90 minute nightmare

  22. Kamran's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Meticulous cinematography and aesthetic subtlety transform the problematic script into a visually impressive fare. 79/100 - Very Good (3.5).

  23. James Mackin's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    This is a great revenge thriller that deconstructs the revenge thriller. And I'm all about that.

  24. Martin De Martin's rating of the film Blue Ruin

    Difficile dire qualcosa di nuovo sul tema della vendetta al cinema. Jeremy Saulnier infatti non ci prova nemmeno e imbastisce il suo revenge movie con tanta classe e un pugno di ottimi attori. La sensazione del già visto è tanta, ma colpisce lo sguardo cinico nel mondo della provincia statunitense, in un inquietante scontro fra rednecks e media borghesia. Tutto sommato efficace.
