HSS-EG Filmhouse: Blue Ruin

The HSS Edinburgh Group have decided to choose a film each month and gather together as humanists to enjoy the films and have an informal discussion afterwards either in the Filmhouse, or in a nearby restaurant. Everyone is welcome. 

Jeremy Saulnier USA 2013 DCP  Starts 18.15 pm 90 minutes Rated 15 - Contains strong bloody violence, bloody injury detail, strong language.

A classic American revenge story and a hit at last year's Cannes Film Festival, Blue Ruinfollows a mysterious outsider whose quiet life is turned upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance, and winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family. " A lean and suspenseful genre piece that follows a bloody trail of vengeance to its cruel, absurd and logical conclusion." - Variety

Please purchase your own ticket in advance either online or call the booking line:[masked] 2688.

    "Boyhood" by Richard Linklater is showing towards the end of July. It scores 100% on rottentomatoes.com (sorry, Jack - pips Vivian Maier at the post). Would anyone care to see it? Monday 28 July at 17.40?

    Go for it. For some reason I noted that for home and not HSS.

    We tend to use the Filmhouse because it provides its programme for the month ahead. Other cinemas don't.
    Of the three films mentioned so far, the one with the best reviews on rottentomatoes.com is Finding Vivian Maier, so it leads the field at the minute (thanks, Jack; sorry, Penny). Comments?

    Les - 100 Year Old Man? Fruitvale Station? I'll be at Dummy Jim but that's possibly not a HSS film. Does it have to be Filmhouse? If anybody sees something suitable in EIFF programme, I'd be happy to slot in an extra one this month.

    I can't see too many films mid-July I'd like to see but this one interests me: http://www.filmhousecinema.com/showing/finding-vivian-maier/

  • Les R.

    Next film? Please look at the films showing at the Filmhouse mid-July, preferably early evening and early in the week. Then suggest a title, time and date. Let's hope that someone can pick a winner!

    The first half was pretty good - lots of tension and realistic violence, stylish film-making too. But the second half could not sustain it - the plot became juvenile and the action was repetitive and cliched. Similar to No Country for Old Men in that respect.

    June 17, 2014

    Gratuitous violence, not terribly convincing story line but still enjoyable

    Last time we went to Jasmin Chinese restaurant afterwards. Anyone care to suggest another eating place? How about Croma (at the Odeon) for a pizza?
