An assured southern gothic revenge movie from Jeremy Saulnier (Murder Party). Two southern families have a blood feud to settle. Schlubby, wide eyed Dwight (Macon Blair) has been waiting for the release of Wade, who served time for killing his parents, so he could kill him. Dwight is not really a seasoned killer and he realizes that the feud has to end somewhere.

Blue Ruin is amazingly suspenseful without showing much or characters saying much. Macon Blair gives an amazing performance as an ordinary man put in a delicate position. Great film.
