    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★½

    A Quiet Place Part II begins with a bit of clever filmmaking, which draws on associations we came to make in the first instalment. The film opens in silence on a streetlight that is green. No cars are passing through the intersection, which immediately suggests that something is wrong, especially when we see the light turn red again. Between the silent world and red light motif that we have come to associate with danger, the film immediately puts us on…

    There is a scene in Titanic where a string quartet is playing classical music on the upper deck, and upon realizing that none of the fleeing passengers are listening to their music, the first violinist decides that they will continue to play their music, in hopes of keeping their waning spirits up.

Susannah's unique and puzzling condition is presented in such a way in the film that we are quick to jump to conclusions about what she is experiencing, whether it is mania,…

    Green Room

    ★★★★½

    Green Room is Saulnier's transition from primary colours to secondary colours.

    This time he experiments with a palette of natural and artificial greens, reflecting the true and artificial nature of the characters portrayed in the film. A common thread between this and Blue Ruin is how Saulnier exposes his characters. At first, they seem to have a tough exterior, but traumatic events in the film reveal their true and vulnerable selves.

    The Ain't Rights are no exception, a punk band…
