Hobo With a Shotgun

Rated R 86 min. 2011

For most movies, adjectives like cheesy, offensive and tasteless carry a negative connotation. But this movie is called Hobo With A Shotgun, for fuck’s sake, so it’d be a shame if these descriptions *didn’t* apply. No worries there. Dartmouth director Jason Eisener’s first feature is a blood-soaked and kinetic exploitation masterpiece, an abattoir for cinema’s sacred cows. B-movie A-lister Rutger Hauer is hilarious as a homeless man who enters a violent, corrupt city, pisses off the local crime lords, takes a sweet hooker (Molly Dunsworth) under his wing and blasts giant holes in bad guys. Eisener and writer John Davies introduce several creative strategies for removing heads, limbs and entrails, painting the screen with arterial spray every couple of minutes. With its gory excess and memorably corny one-liners, Hobo is a trashy homegrown treasure. —Matt Semansky
