‘Out of the Blue’ Finally in Theaters and VOD

'Out of the Blue' Finally in Theaters and VOD

After a long delay (mostly due to the Virginia Tech massacre), Robert Sarkies’ docu-style drama Out of the Blue, is finally making it to U.S. theaters this week courtesy of IFC First Take. The film is thimble-small in scope but very powerful, unsettling, and kinetic. Some have already compared its style to that of Paul Greengrass’ United 93, and that’s somewhat true. Yet, Sarkies enriches the material (the devastating, real-life 1990 massacre of a small town in New Zealand) with broader character strokes. For Filmmaker, Nick Dawson chats with Sarkies. Try to see this film, on VOD if necessary.
