'Night Moves' Depicts the Blindness and Violence of Ideology - PopMatters

Note: This review contains spoilers.


Night Moves is the kind of thriller where everyone broods and not a lot is said. If one were to imagine a less talkative take on the filmography of David Fincher (particularly films like Zodiac and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo ), she would not be far off in describing Kelly Reichardt ‘s latest cinematic venture. Using the gorgeous Pacific Northwest as a backdrop, captured stunningly by cinemaphotographer Christopher Blauvelt, Reichardt depicts the tale of three radical environmentalists from Oregon who seek to blow up a major river dam.


Focusing on moments of tense silence (which make up the majority of the film), on conversations in the shade of Oregon’s tall evergreens, and on the eerily placid river where the bombing takes place, Reichardt weaves a tale of palpable intrigue and suspense. Almost every decision made by the ecoterrorist trio, comprised of Josh (Jesse Eisenberg), Dena (Dakota Fanning), and Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard), feels as if it’s the linchpin of the plot. Reichardt makes the audience feel the gravity of every step in the plan, which makes the long stretches of silence all the more tense.


However, what’s most disturbing about the use of silence in Night Moves is not the Hitchockian thriller echoes it gives off, though those are indeed quite strong. Rather, the limited dialogue of the film, and the intense directive with which the trio plots out the bombing, highlights just how many unproven assumptions the trio has made in determining both the justness and the efficacy of the plot to blow up the dam.


Given the steely gazes and glum facial expressions of Josh, Dana, and Harmon, it’s clear they take their task seriously; the decision to undergo the bombing is not one they take lightly. Nevertheless, there’s an uncertainty right at the core of Night Moves , as well as the very motivations of the trio.
