Movement and Location has some clear-cut parallels to the stories of immigrants who are in the States illegally and are trying to live quiet, productive lives... But it also works as a Rod Serling-esque sci-fi adventure of the mind.
Lacking flashy CGI (or any other special effects), this imaginative low-budget indie (2014) relies heavily on dystopian gloom.
Systematically yet subtly, the Bolings and their strong cast take this certifiably oddball film in some thoughtfully intriguing places.
Movement and Location is an original and intelligent immigrant drama with a title so academic (and uncommercial) that you might want to give the filmmakers a firm talking-to.
Movement and Location is as smart a piece of sci-fi as one could hope to see.
Dear heavens, there's such microbudget goodness in Movement + Location, a slice of lowercase, sotto voce Brooklyn-set sci-fi written, produced, starred-in and edited by Bodine Boling, directed and shot by Alexis Boling.
The drama that emerges from these broken, fugitive lives is as an allegory of exile, immigration and assimilation, while defamiliarising the things (food, water, space) that we take for granted in our own times.
A futuristic thriller that never truly explains itself. Impoverished citizens from the future are sent back in time to live better lives, but the repetitive allusions to the future do nothing to clarify how much time has actually passed, whose lives they co-opt, and why the future is the way it is.
The extraordinary performances are saving graces though: teenager Catherine Missal is bold yet guarded as Rachel, and writer and lead actress Bodine Boling is intensely fragile as Kim, then sweetly euphoric in her romance with the stalwart good cop played by Brendan Griffin.
