NIGHT MOVES

2013, 112m, USA
with Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard; screenplay by: Jon Raymond, Kelly Reichardt; cinematography: Christopher Blauvelt; produced by Neil Kopp, Anish Savjani, Chris Maybach, Saemi Kim, Rodrigo Teixeira

 

Night is the setting for all of the most dramatic events in this thrilling story of three Oregon-based radical environmentalists who seek to bring the masses to recognize the impending doom of Earth’s depletion through an act of extreme sabotage. We follow the trio step by step as they carry out their plan, each one contributing what they know best: the leader, an organic farmer devoted to protecting Earth by any means necessary, devises the plan; his accomplice, a former Marine, brings a knowledge of explosives and a passion for destruction; and the only woman in the trio bankrolls the operation, while her smarts and cute face make them look less suspicious. What they aren’t prepared for are the unintended consequences of their actions. Working again with Jon Raymond on the script, Reichardt brings out the best in her excellent cast — Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, and Peter Sarsgaard — while Jeff Grace composes another perfect score for this naturalistic, caustic contemporary drama.

 

 

“As tightly wound and gripping as a thumbscrew.” Robbie Collin, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

“Nail biting...almost hitchcockian.” David Rooney, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

 

“The suspense is built exquisitely.” Ben Kenigsberg, A.V. CLUB

RIVER OF GRASS (1994) RIVER OF GRASS (1994) Titled after the Native American name for the region, River of Grass tells the story of a thirty-something mother of three who runs away from boredom and her family. Restless and on a quest to find excitement, she meets an equally lost soul, a man-child hanging out in a local bar. What follows is a hilarious “crime” spree of the clueless pair on the run. OLD JOY (2006) OLD JOY (2006) Two longtime friends set on a weekend camping trip in the Oregon woods. One has remained faithful to the freewheeling life of their youth, avoiding any decisions that can’t be taken back. The other one has settled down, and is soon to become a father. By the end of the journey, they’ll either face off or find out what holds them together. WENDY AND LUCY (2008) WENDY AND LUCY (2008) In this formally minimalist drama, the title heroine, Wendy, sets out on a cross-country drive with her dog, Lucy, in the hope of finding a well-paying job in Alaska’s fish processing plants. When the car breaks down, it plunges her even deeper into despair, threatening to unravel her already dire circumstances.  MEEK’S CUTOFF (2010) MEEK’S CUTOFF (2010) Oregon, 1845. A group of settlers with a hired guide, Stephen Meek, make the trek from Missouri with the dream of staking out land in the West for a prosperous future. We make the trek along with them, from a lush, water-filled landscape to the dried-out, dusty, windy, and unforgiving high desert.  NIGHT MOVES (2013) NIGHT MOVES (2013) Night is the setting for all of the most dramatic events in this thrilling story of three Oregon-based radical environmentalists who seek to bring the masses to recognize the impending doom of Earth’s depletion through an act of extreme sabotage. But they aren’t prepared for the unintended consequences of their actions.
