Night Moves & their consequences is what Ranjan wants us to savor over the week

In the guise of a thriller NIGHT MOVES (US, 2013) depicts the efforts of three young radical environmentalists (Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, and Peter Sarsgaard) to blow up a dam in their region and the consequences of their action. The film not only points a finger at impending environmental disasters if we do not take action in time but also makes a searing comment on the folly of youth who think individual, stray attacks that are devoid of any holistic approach could usher in the desired change.

Check out the trailer here:

American independent director Kelly Reichardt who has given us the wonderful WENDY AND LUCY (2008) and FIRST COW (2022), apart from other films, recreates 'atmosphere' as a key cinematic element here. Look it up on MUBI; it’s a neat but disturbing film.

Ranjan Das is a Mumbai based filmmaker & faculty.
