Night Moves Geregisseerd door Kelly Reichardt
Night Moves at once follows the template of heist films such as Rififi—another film about a mostly unacquainted trio joining together for one big job before turning on each other—and remains strangely detached from it… Reichardt’s patient, observational takes, from her shots of barren trees to an insert shot of a garbage dump, opt for verisimilitude at odds with the heist flick.

Night Moves is cruel and paranoid where Old Joy was tender and elegiac, but both movies (and really all her movies) are taking place in the latter’s “falling-tear-shaped universe”, where tragedy seems at once inevitable and entirely self-willed. It’s a contradiction that could drive a person crazy, and in Night Moves – which is finally a very scary film – it absolutely does.

Unfortunately, despite best efforts from both Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning, the characters feel like they’re working against their own internal logic. The twist ending belies too much of the well-crafted dynamic that came before it. Not only that, but the event that turns the narrative also undermines its social conviction. In trying to present a balanced view of the counter-argument, Reichardt sadly dismisses her own.

    I: The way D moves her nose, whilst smirking/ II: "Oat meal is all you need" vs 'You need protein, girl!'/ III: The way the group - but especially D(ena) - dismisses the blonde hiker; that moment when she looks down & puts her hoodie on, gave me some serious goosebumps; that poor guy standing there, hands on hips, going "Riiiiiight, I should probably skedaddle, before I get any more evil stares from this weird lot" ▽

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Night Moves

    A minimalist thriller that thinks a little too highly of its own approach. At times naturalistic, believable, but also tenuous and peppered with one-dimensional caricatures who spout obvious dialogue. I found myself hoping the filmmaker intended for the rampant hypocrisy of her characters, because it was comical. In short – righteous hipsters make a bomb and didn't think it would hurt anybody so they get upset.

  • Ethan's rating of the film Night Moves

    This is a thriller on par with an Antonioni film with a little bit of Hitchcock sprinkled on top for good measure. Kelly Reichardt is a very intimate filmmaker who relies more on emotions than anything else to tell a story and it is absolutely brilliant. Eisenberg, Fanning, and Sarsgaard are brilliant too as they navigate themselves through this finely crafted film.

  • saitosouta's rating of the film Night Moves

    Perhaps 2 years ago when I don't know Reichardt completely, I watched this & think "What a boring & tenuous garbage is !" Well, I was irredeemable idiot. Rewatching this, I noticed that "Night Moves" is tensely insightful thriller with keeping her minimal & matter-of-fact direction. At this time, I'm especially impressed with her depicting how Jesse Eisenberg's charismatic character is captured by paranoia. Amazing.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Night Moves

    Reichardt's most conventional movie—her slickest and most entertaining, but also a little slight. Great performance from Jesse Eisenberg, though, and a tense and thoughtful sketch on how a revolutionary impulses don't change anything so much as the life of the activist.

  • 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.

  • Z's rating of the film Night Moves

    A sad and lonely portrait of societal outsiders grasping at extremist terrorism. Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard are all touching, vulnerable and in the moment. It's really a character study which plays out as several lost souls make choices and have to deal with the psychological fall out of their actions. Feels like Terrence Malick crossed with the serious intent of early Harold Becker.

  • josé neves's rating of the film Night Moves

    The title in Portuguese of the homonymous Arthur Penn's film is "A Throw in the Dark", which corresponds exactly to the second and great part of this film, which follows the bomb at the dam. Until there, is more of what indie cinema became: banality with pretension. Thereafter, the angst takes over the images of the movie, that obscures and becomes paranoia. Almost as good as a William Friedkin's.
