How Jan Brady went bad for revenge thriller 'Blue Ruin'

30 April 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

“I’m not known for my gun-play,” says Brady Bunch star Eve Plumb.

No kidding. So how did the actress who played Jan Brady on the classic sitcom wind up portraying the gun-toting matriarch of a crime family in the indie revenge thriller Blue Ruin (which was released last Friday and is also available  to watch on VOD)? “Well, auditions are few and far between and I will audition for anything,” says the plain-speaking Plumb, 56. Her taped audition impressed director Jeremy Saulnier, who was unfamiliar with the actress’ small-screen work. “Jeremy shows me all these audition tapes, and he was like, »

‘Blue Ruin’ Review

30 April 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Macon Blair, Devin Ratray, Amy Hargreaves, Kevin Kolack, Eve Plumb, David W. Thompson, Brent Werzner, Stacy Rock, Sidné Anderson | Written and Directed by Jeremy Saulnier

Jeremy Saulnier may be in the early days of his directing career, but his second directorial effort Blue Ruin shows he has an old cinematic soul.  It tells the age old story of the price of vengeance in a reserved and darkly twisted manner with just the right amount of absurdity.  Saulnier has a command for the material as he takes a common tale and brings an interesting new approach. Saulnier’s style is reminiscent of some of cinema’s biggest heavyweights including The Coen Brothers and Tarantino, and while it is hyperbolic to claim he is at that level—he at least is starting in the right direction.

Movie Review – Blue Ruin (2013)

28 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blue Ruin, 2013.

Written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier.

Starring Macon Blair, Devin Ratray, Amy Hargreaves, Kevin Kolack and Eve Plumb.

Synopsis:

A mysterious outsider’s 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.

“He’s going to be released” says a police officer to Dwight, a long haired, long bearded vagrant whose only place he can call home is a rusty, beaten up light blue Pontiac. With these few words one man makes a decision which will see bloodshed and violence, with no one getting away clean.

For a revenge thriller, a genre which has been tried and tested for decades, Blue Ruin is quite brilliant and what resonates the most is the lead character, Dwight. As the film begins we »

Sundance London 2014 Review – Blue Ruin (2013)

27 April 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blue Ruin, 2013

Written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier

Starring Macon Blair, Devin Ratray, Amy Hargreaves, Kevin Kolack, Eve Plumb

Synopsis:

A mysterious outsider’s 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.

Much like Out of the Furnace, Blue Ruin is a purposefully slow and beautifully crafted revenge thriller which takes its time with its plot, drip feeds you information as and when you need it and keeps you on the edge of your seat until its dramatic conclusion. Gripping, powerful and captivating are just a few words to describe this gem.

Macon Blair plays Dwight, a homeless and heavily bearded fellow who lives out of his rusted Pontiac, steals food from dumpsters and uses other people’s homes to bathe himself while they’re out. »

Blue Ruin review - Sundance London 2014

26 April 2014 3:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jeremy Saulnier; Screenwriter Jeremy Saulnier; Starring: Macon Blair, Devin Ratray, Amy Hargreaves, Kevin Kolack, Eve Plumb Running time: 90 mins; Certificate: 15

Centring as it does on a middle-aged milquetoast struggling to navigate an incomprehensibly violent criminal world with frequent comic ineptitude, there's a superficial comparison to be made between Jeremy Saulnier's partially Kickstarter-funded Blue Ruin and the early seasons of Breaking Bad. It's the element of fish-out-of-water black comedy that works most consistently in a stripped-back revenge thriller that racks up some electrically powerful moments, but doesn't ultimately follow through on the intriguing promise of its first act.

"He's going to be released," are some of the first words we hear in an opening that is deliberately frugal with its dialogue, sketching out the day-to-day life of bearded drifter Dwight (Macon Blair) in elliptical snapshots. The murder of his parents 20 years prior has left him haunted and hollow-eyed, but »

'Blue Ruin' filmmakers talk beards and betting the bank on their indie-thriller

24 April 2014 12:43 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It has become standard operating procedure for studios and filmmakers to target specific slices of the population when promoting movies. But we’re fairly sure that writer-director Jeremy Saulnier’s film Blue Ruin is the first thriller to reach out to the community of beard-growers.

In the movie, actor Macon Blair plays a homeless man whose plan to kill the person responsible for the death of his parents unravels in increasingly tragi-comic, and, at times, extremely violent, ways. For the role, Blair spent 9 months growing out his facial fuzz and that growth has become a strangely pivotal part of the movie’s marketing campaign, »

Bradford International Film Festival 2014 Review - Blue Ruin (2013)

31 March 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blue Ruin, 2013.

Written and Directed Jeremy Saulnier.

Starring Macon Blair, Devin Ratray, Amy Hargreaves, Kevin Kolack and Eve Plumb.

Synopsis:

A mysterious outsider's 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.

To describe Blue Ruin as “pulpy” would both undersell the film and nail its violent familial revenge scenario dead-on. For the movie - writer/director Jeremy Saulnier’s impressive second turn at the bat - is comfortable being both a schlocky pulp fiction thriller and a genuinely affecting (in its own sly, understated way) mystery drama, one resting on a lead character elevated to Greek tragedy by a quietly commanding performer.

Revenge Isn’t Sweet In ‘Blue Ruin’ Trailer

4 March 2014 10:22 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Here’s the UK trailer for independent American revenge thriller, Blue Ruin. The film follows Dwight (Macon Blair), who returns to his hometown in order to carry out revenge, but to what end? The trailer is a beautifully paced attention grabber, focusing more on the calm voice of a local police officer and merely hinting at the violence to come. This truly seems to be the calm before the storm, and as some of the quotes suggest, this has been a very well received little thriller.

Arriving from the mind of director Jeremy Saulnier, who gave us the rather bizarre but funny horror Murder Party, Blue Ruin is looking to be a very serious entry into the long list of revenge films. Saulnier has mostly worked as a cinematographer and it shows in the beautifully grim look of Blue Ruin.

Blue Ruin is released in the UK on 2nd May »
