Screener Squad: Blow the Man Down

Blow the Man Down Movie Review


Fargo and Manchester by the Sea mash together awkwardly in Blow the Man Down. Set in a small fishing town in Maine, the story follows Mary Beth (Morgan Saylor) and Priscilla (Sophie Lowe) going about their droll lives hoping for better things. However, after an incident involving a creep named Gorski (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), they find themselves involved in a cover-up of a murder that coincides with another murder of a young girl. Meanwhile, shady dealings with a local brothel owner (Margo Martindale) come to the forefront as she gets involved in their lives. Justin, Santiago, and Max have quite a bit to say about this movie that so far has been critically acclaimed. Did they fall in line with the other critics?


DIRECTORS: Bridget Savage Cole and Danielle Krudy

STARRING: Morgan Saylor, Sophie Lowe, Margo Martindale, June Squibb, Annette O’Toole, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Gayle Rankin, Skipp Sudduth, Marceline Hugot, Kendray Rodriguez, Will Brittain, David Coffin, Thomas Kee
