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)
