Reviews

Three radical environmentalists come together to execute the most intense protest of their lives: the explosion of a hydroelectric dam – the very source and symbol of the energy-sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture they despise. Night Moves is a tale of suspense and a meditation on the consequences of political extremism, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard. Auteur director Kelly Reichardt retains her distinctive style while incorporating genre elements.

It is remarkable how a simple, plain story becomes so engrossing, intriguing and even profound in the hands of a gifted director. It is generally the case that better films are made by fleshing out an uncomplicated concept than by digesting a complex story, such as a book, for the screen. On paper, ’Night Moves’ must have been hardly more than an idea, but on screen it expands to a cinema experience that is unique, rare and memorable.

The key to the success of ‘Night Moves’ is its visual style. From the first frame that focuses on water jets gushing from an overspill of a dam, meticulously composed imagery drives and punctuates the narrative. Intentionally drab despite being set in beautiful surroundings, the imagery allows the viewer to experience the proceedings at a realistic pace, thereby gradually building interest, mystery and suspense. Captivatingly, it takes a long while before intentions of the protagonists become clear and even longer to fully understand who they actually are, much of the characterisations being visual rather than dialogue driven.

Underpinning that approach is the brooding presence of Jesse Eisenberg. In stark contrast to most of his previous appearances, he is a silent volcano of rage here, that can erupt any second, but the only window to that menace are his eyes, for he is outwardly a pleasant and likeable man. Kelly Reichardt develops his character so gradually that it rounds up to be understood only at the very end. While Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard are both perfect in their performances, it is Eisenberg’s persona that pulls the emotional punch of this film and therefore drives its premise home.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A quietly contemplative, low-budget indie thriller. Not the normal shooting-shouting high-octane stuff, but a tense little drama about three people who commit an ill-considered act of violence and then have to come to terms with the consequences.
The plot revolves around environmental / ecological issues, but it presents them in an interestingly non-judgmental manner. it demonstrates the commitment of the key players and their motives for taking radical action; then peels back their personalities when things start to unravel.
A thoughtful, oblique film, one which highlights many environmental issues without hectoring or lecturing. It also demonstrates the tendency of some folk to blindly commit to their cause, whatever that cause may be, without necessarily considering the implications of their actinos.
Excellent performances by all three actors, and some lovely photography too.
Perhaps only let down by the characters' naïveté: could they really have been so sloppy in their preparations? Do they know nothing of modern criminal investigation? And would their home-made explosive even have dented the dam?
Those unlikely moments apart, it was a fascinating film.
8/10

Format: Blu-ray
Josh (Jesse Eisenberg) is a brooding young man who works on a farm. One night when he and Dena (Dakota Fanning) attend a film on how man is destroying the earth, they get inspired to take action...destroy the local hydro-electric dam because it blocks the salmon. Josh recruits his explosive Marine buddy Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard) to join the mayhem.

While the plan is well thought out, the over-all picture left much to be desired. Hydro-electric is a preferred renewable to fossil fuels, but its all about the fish. We never see the actual explosion, but the group has to deal with the consequences of their action.

The scenery is drab brown and rather lifeless. The characters are not likeable and are rather boring. The dialogue had no zip. The theme of the film is...? Paranoia will destroya? You got to break a few eggs to make real mayonnaise?

I expected a better film from this cast.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex. Early nudity.

Reichardt delivers a taut, unconventionally-themed thriller with the best performance to date from Jesse Eisenberg (and after The Social Network that's saying something). Tapping into the Northwest environmentalist mindset perfectly, the film sets up a simple plan that it moves towards and executes from arms length. The actors are given room to flesh out their characters with a precision not usually offered to them - supporting cast from Dakota Fanning (who has also never been better) and Peter Sarsgaard (adept at niche roles like this by now) react to the paranoid anxiety of Eisenberg's character with acute effortlessness.

Starting off as a conspiracy plot the film later moves towards psychological territory as the characters try to cope with the guilt of something illegal they may or may not have been part of. This is the most striking of Reichardt's films to date and the second she has knowingly played around genre, peeling off Hollywood convention to get to the good stuff - the film plays like a noir you had never seen before, or thought you would see. By the end the conclusion is decidedly wreathed in mystery and will leave a haunting essence that demands repeat watches. Beautifully shot and the score is intense and as subtle as the performances - this is one of the best films of the year, and any doubters simply do not know what they are missing. You will not see another film like it.
