Reviews: Night Moves (2014)

night_movesReviews for this film from our members:

  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Night Moves stares, unflinching, at an amoral bomb ready to blow, and there’s nothing to be done to stop it.
  • Candice Frederick @ Reel Talk
  • Travis Hopson @ Punch Drunk Critics
    • Excerpt: Reichardt has always preferred an economy of plot in order to leave room for her character building efforts, and those who appreciate that in her work will find plenty of it.
  • Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
    • Excerpt: ‘Night Moves’ is a decent eco thriller, but never adds up to more than that.
  • [New – 11/13/14] | Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
  • Frank Ochieng @ Sound on Sight
    • Excerpt: Methodical, moody and breezily reflective, Reichardt’s suspense piece has a slow-footed pacing but registers with quiet resonance in its message about lingering environmental indifference and the retaliation against the establishment that allows for such blatant negligence.
  • Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: As dramatic as all this sounds, Reichardt doesn’t needlessly dramatize any of it. Rather, as with all her narratives, she lets the events move at their natural pace, allowing her characters to be as they are and do what they may.
  • Jonathan Richards @ www.jonrichardsplace.com
    • Excerpt: Her characters are young people without a sense of history: like the neocons who ignored the lessons of the region, ancient and recent, by sending troops into Afghanistan (and then diverting strength to the imagined cakewalk in Iraq), these kids have no working memory of the Vietnam era, when radical acts of terrorism sometimes went tragically wrong, This is a movie that evokes the ‘60s, without remembering them.
