NIGHT MOVES, the fifth feature film from acclaimed filmmaker Kelly Reichardt, is the story of three radical environmentalists coming together to execute the most intense protest of their lives: the explosion of a hydroelectric dam-the very source and symbol of the energy-sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture they despise. Harmon is a former Marine, radicalized by tours of duty overseas. His life in the military is behind him, but at heart he remains the same reckless alpha male he always was, eager for adventure, excited by the prospect of mayhem and destruction.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's interesting to see a film raise its most important questions in the home stretch, but the sense that half the movie has been set up for a punchline feels disingenuous."
‑ Calum Marsh,
"A disquietingly beautiful, deeply intelligent thriller about radical activism and its consequences - both material and moral - in 21st century America."
‑ Jon Frosch, The Atlantic
"Kelly Reichardt cements her reputation as one of the most provocative and engagingly watchable American indie filmmakers with a quiet, tense thriller of morality and motive."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Reichardt, who co-wrote the film, refreshingly opts out of defined moral judgements concerning both the central trio and supporting figures peppered throughout the story."
‑ Josh Slater-Williams, The Skinny
"A marginal improvement over Kelly Reichardt's last film..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"At times I thought I was bored, only to realize that I was actually feeling anxious and more than a little queasy."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice
"An engrossing reflection on radical violence and its fallout."
‑ David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
"By the filmmaker's understated, incisive standards, "Night Moves" is practically an action movie -- an increasingly intense and troubling one."
‑ Tim Grierson, Paste Magazine
"Night Moves' distinct structural halves hint at an internal division that keeps it a resolutely minor offering."
‑ Jake Cole, Movie Mezzanine
"Essentially Crime & Punishment for the eco-hipster set, Night Moves is a compelling drama that treats the characters' beliefs, and the eventual consequences of their actions, to a compelling cross-examination."
‑ Michael Leader, Film4
"Precisely the sort of intelligent, measured thriller Reichardt's admirers would expect from her brand of patient realist filmmaking."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"Like Michael Cera's two recent films with Sebastian Silva, Night Moves reveals the dark core contained within an actor's nice-guy neuroticism."
‑ Jesse Cataldo, Slant Magazine
"Once again, this is highly intelligent and sensitive filmmaking from Reichardt."
‑ Anna Rodgers, The List
"Confunde-se entre estudo de personagem e suspense, falhando em ambos os papéis."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Night Moves is riddled with suspense, but its strength comes from its characters whose moral idealism is tested by unforeseen consequences."
‑ Darren Ruecker, We Got This Covered
