Sir Patrick Stewart said in an interview that when he finished reading the script at his country home in England, it was so terrifying, that he locked up his house, turned on the security system, and poured himself a Scotch. He then knew that he wanted to play the Darcy Banker role because a character that horrifying would be an incredible challenge, and make for a compelling movie. See more »
When Tiger plays a vinyl LP on a phonograph in Tad's apartment, he cues the record to the beginning, but the song that plays first is Track 7 of Side 1 of that album. Later, in a shot of the vinyl disc spinning silently with the needle all the way over to the disc's label, you can see that the disc has 5 medium length tracks, but the album supposedly played has 8 short songs on both sides. Though to be honest, we have no way of knowing how many records they played after the first one. See more »

So, i finally got the time to watch the movies so far in 2016. I read an article that said this movie is one of the best movie so far this year, and i agree.
'Green Room' is about a struggling punk band that got into a wrong place at wrong time when one of them, Pat, witness a murder after the show they got into at secluded part of the Pacific Northwest. They, then play a mouse-and-cat game with group of maniacal skinheads.
The story might move slowly, but it's still well developed. What really stands out to me is the cinematography and the score. the dark cinematography actually helps the audience to feel the dark and tense tone of the movie. and the score complete some moments at the movie.
Newcomer director Jeremy Saulnier did a pretty good job, and i actually looking forward to see his next works. The performances of the movie is also great, Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots did a wonderful job, and so is the rest, except Patrick Stewart. His performance here is really weak and actually defeated by the plot. The character might written to be the silent yet deadly villain, but he just do the silent part and leave the deadly, leaving his character, as i said before, really weak.
the ending is simple, and actually predictable, but left me satisfied.
I really recommend the movie, if you're looking for an enjoyable thriller. but, if you're looking for a horror, i actually don't recommend you since this movie is actually far from what horror is.
