NIGHT MOVES ★★★★ Di­rected by Kelly Re­ichardt. Star­ring Jesse Eisen­berg, Dakota Fan­ning, Peter Sars­gaard

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

If you were in the mood, you could read this tense, pe­cu­liar drama as an at­tack on the en­vi­ron­men­tal move­ment. The film goes among three ac­tivists – “ter­ror­ists” to most – who elect to blow up a dam for largely ob­scure rea­sons. What it ac­tu­ally is is a care­ful study of ex­trem­ism that in­cor­po­rates ten­sion into Re­ichardt trade­mark blank drama. An im­pres­sive, very odd piece of work. 15A cert, QFT, Belfast; IFI/Light House, Dublin, 112 min
