Kelly Reichardt United States, 2013

Addy K.'s rating of the film Night Moves

Kelly Richardht turns the tables on the film's eco-terrorists and its viewers by cagily shifting the tone from thriller to Shakespearean tragedy. Underneath the formal rigor (Richardht edits herself, cinematographer Christopher Blauvet meticulously frames) lie casual metaphors about our ridiculous pursuit to control Nature which may exist in a universe simply apathetic to us.
