Remember Anton Yelchin In The Horror Yarn ‘Green Room’ And The Family Drama ‘We Don’t Belong Here’

We still can’t believe he’s gone.

 

Green Room (M18)

Starring Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat, Imogen Poots | Directed by Jeremy Saulnier

This nasty chiller will make you think twice about wandering off in the backwoods part of USA. A punk band (led by the late Anton Yelchin and Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat) is trapped in the wrong place at the wrong time when they witness a murder in a remote club run by white supremacists.

Light years from the benevolent Professor X and Captain Picard, Patrick Stewart is terrifying as the skinhead leader who wants the rockers dead at all costs.  (* * * 1/2)

We Don’t Belong Here (M18)

Starring Anton Yelchin, Catherine Keener

Directed by Peer Pedersen

Another’ posthumous Anton Yelchin release. This confusing family drama stars Catherine Keener as a socialite housewife struggling to keep up with her four mentally distraught children.

The viewer, too, will be frustrated by the schizo, is-it-real-or-not? narrative — you’re never sure whose fragmented perspective it’s being told from — even though there are some moving performances here and there, especially Yelchin’s turn as a bipolar sufferer. (* * 1/2)
