  • Critic Reviews
    "[T]he tension that settles in slowly like a low-grade fever keeps you with it....The core of the film is a cat-and-mouse game."
    Los Angeles Times

    "BLUE RUIN is as visually striking as one might expect a film helmed by a talented cinematographer to be. But Saulnier has more than a great eye; hes got the soul of a natural filmmaker..."
    A.V. Club

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Artfully shot and drenched in melancholy, though not without darkly comic moments, BLUE RUIN nonetheless achieves nerve-wracking peaks of tension..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "From camera angles...to the unnerving soundtrack, this guy knows how to build a nail-biter."
    RogerEbert.com

    "Dwight makes for a bungling action hero and a polarizing moral center....Mr. Blair cleverly plays him as touchingly surprised by his own acts of brutality."
    New York Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "A lean, tough, thoughtful thriller with depth, Blue Ruin establishes Jeremy Saulnier as a promising indie auteur and Macon Blair as an unusual leading man."
    Empire

    "Funny, violent and lobbing narrative curveballs like a young Schwarzenegger tossing hand grenades..."
    Total Film

    "[T]he film wouldnt be half as interesting as it is if not for the casting of Macon Blair as Dwight. Its his big nervous eyes and bushy quizzical brows that make the film..."
    Film Comment

    4 stars out of 4 -- "Jeremy Saulniers impressive thriller stars Macon Blair in a superbly expressive performance."
    Washington Post
