In this episode of VICE Talks Film, we meet Jeremy Saulnier, the writer and director behind indie breakout hit Blue Ruin, whose follow up, Green Room, hits theaters April 15. Saulnier explains how he channeled the DIY backyard action films he made as a kid to create a chaotic siege thriller that pits a punk band against a violent gang of neo-Nazis. We chat about Saulnier's history of experimental filmmaking, the casting of Patrick Stewart as Green Room's neo-Nazi villain, and how his haphazard use of violence creates a visceral horror experience.
