Welcome to Cheat Sheet, our brief breakdown-style reviews of festival films, VR previews, and other special event releases. This review comes from the Toronto International Film Festival.

Director Jeremy Saulnier specializes in dragging his characters out of their worlds and leaving them out of their depths. Over the course of his three previous films — Murder PartyBlue Ruin, and Green Room — he’s developed a reputation for intense stories punctuated with startling violence, but none of the intensity would be possible and none of the violence would be meaningful if he weren’t so focused on stories about people who are ill-equipped to handle either.

Hold the Dark 2018

In Murder Party, a lonely man follows up on a Halloween party invitation and discovers he’s literally there to be killed for kicks. In Blue Ruin, a trauma victim attempts to avenge his parents, even though he’s supremely unprepared for the level of planning and ruthlessness that will be necessary. And in Green Room, a punk band witnesses a murder at a skinhead bar, and a neo-Nazi leader (played by Patrick Stewart) attempts to kill them all to cover up the event.


In all three cases, the protagonists are unsuited for and inexperienced with violence, and they’re up against antagonists who are, to varying degrees, better equipped to handle lethal force. But in all three of these movies, the protagonists eventually, necessarily find a kind of temporary peace with murder — or at least a capacity to go further than they ever expected to defend themselves.
