Night Moves
There's a million ways for the perfect plan to go wrong, and the trio leading Kelly Reichardt's "Night Moves" are trying to avoid them all. One of our Most Anticipated Films Of The Summer, the low key thriller could be a nice change of pace from the eye-melting, ear-shattering blockbusters coming in the next few months, and another new clip has arrived to give you taste of what's coming.

Night Moves, Kelly Reichardt
Director Kelly Reichardt (“Wendy and Lucy,” “Meek’s Cutoff’) has an eye for vast American landscapes, in which she deliberately places lonesome, trudging souls who are continuously searching—for connections, for new lives, for meaning.

As one of AMC’s most successful and critically acclaimed shows nears its finish just a few short episodes away, it seems another of the network’s line-up has halted mid-race. Dogged by mixed reception, cancellation, and then revival by AMC and Netflix, season three of “The Killing” promised a quality return with new supporting cast members and a resolved mystery by its end (not to mention strong reviews too). But while the drama delivered both with its recently aired finale, the efforts weren’t enough to carry the show through to a fourth season.

Night Moves
With a trio of measured dramas under her belt — “Old Joy,” “Wendy & Lucy” and “Meek’s Cutoff” — Kelly Reichardt has established herself as a filmmaker whose storytelling is patient and considered. But when news arrived that her latest "Night Moves" would take on eco-terrorism and feature a Hollywood-ish cast with Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Petes Sarsgaard, it certainly grabbed our attention. The result? As our review out of Venice notes, a "perfect reminder that Reichardt is one of the most exciting directorial talents we have right now."

Night Moves, Jesse Eisenberg
After the acclaimed trio of “Old Joy,” “Wendy & Lucy” and “Meek’s Cutoff,” Kelly Reichardt was already proving hard to pin down. The three films that made her name (plus her lesser-known earlier works “ Ode” and “River Of Grass”) are immediately recognizable as the work of the director, but very different from each other thematically, if perhaps not formally. Whatever her next move was going to be, it was going to be interesting, but few would have predicted that it would be “Night Moves” – a crackling little suspense thriller/morality play indebted to Dostoyevsky and Hitchcock. But while it’s a left turn, it’s at least as good as the films that came before it, and still with the same recognizable DNA intact.

In age where the Occupy Wall Street galvanized not just those in Zuccotti Park, but folks across the country, and where Edward Snowden's revelations continue to make headlines, it's no surprise that cinema is quickly responding. Earlier this year, we saw Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling explore off-the-grid movements in "The East," and this fall the Julian Assange saga gets the big screen treatment via "The Fifth State." But before that, the festival circuit will be treated to the latest from Kelly Reichardt, "Night Moves."

Lovelace
Not so much a film about Linda Lovelace as a film about a bunch of things that happen to Linda Lovelace, including a destructive marriage to seeming complete, total, bonafide scumbag sonofabitch Chuck Traynor, "Lovelace" is a glossy, starry package featuring loving '70s set design, costuming and narratively crucial hairstyling (more on that later). But, the main question was always around the casting of the leading lady, especially given that the last few years have seen a flurry of names come and go from both this and rival Lovelace project “Inferno” (which famously once boasted Seyfried’s “Mean Girls” co-star Lindsay Lohan). Yes, Lovelace was herself by many accounts a very sweet and warm person, but she was also the first porn superstar, and later on a vocal anti-porn crusader; we knew Seyfried could play the white swan, but could she play the black swan? Actually she probably could have, if she had been given the right script: Seyfried’s performance is the best thing about the film by miles, it’s just a shame there isn’t more to her role.
