Blue Ruin

Bullseyes:  ④ (out of 5)

Blue Ruin is one long slow simmer of a movie. The suspense builds right from the get-go when we learn that the main character, a homeless dude living out of his ‘Blue Ruin’ shit box of a car, is faced with the release of his wife and kid’s killer…

What’s he going to do?

The action is deliberate and mostly wordless. And why not? Why do we need words anyway when our actions are all that count?

Wow that was profound.

By the end of the movie there is the sense that everything was inevitable and yet, nobody won. A lot like life then, right?

Wow, I’ve blown my mind…
