New York! “BLUE RUIN” screens tonight with Filmmaker Q&A!News Samuel Zimmerman
Jeremy Saulnier’s long-awaited follow-up to MURDER PARTY, BLUE RUIN, is a straightforward and emotionally and viscerally impacting little revenge picture that’s on its way to being one of the most acclaimed films of the season. Now out in limited release, BLUE RUIN has enjoyed a weekend of special event screenings at Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema where Saulnier and star Macon Blair have joined audiences for Q&A’s. If you’ve yet to see this fantastic film however, the fun isn’t over yet. Saulnier and Blair return to Nitehawk tonight (April 28) where the Q&A will be moderated by our own Samuel Zimmerman.
In BLUE RUIN, Macon Blair gives a stirring turn as a mysterious outsider whose quiet life is turned upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving himself an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family. It’s an excellent, intimate tale with both grit and tenderness that deserves a theatrical viewing, most especially with the treat of filmmakers on hand,
Saulnier and Blair will take part in a Q&A at tonight’s 7 p.m. showing of BLUE RUIN at Nitehawk Cinema (136 Metropolitan Ave. Brooklyn, NY), a wonderful theater that Fango and myself continuously enjoy working with.
