List: Top 3 Movies About Violence
This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed Jeremy Saulnier’s latest and violent film, Green Room. Violence in film has been around for decades and as mentioned above, there are some films that use it to make a statement thematically while others will enthrall you with violent entertainment. The great films will usually do both. Many genre have depicted violence, so our lists this week had specific criteria to help us narrow down what kind of violence we were looking but we rose to the challenge and came up with some great lists.
