Eisenberg delivers one of his best performances since The Social Network.

The last time Reichardt took a crack at a genre film it was the western with Meek's Cutoff, which worked wonderfully. This time I think she simply picked the wrong area to work with.

This gripping film eschews typical tropes and character archetypes in favour of gradually wrenching the audience's collective stomach with a building tension.
November 8, 2018
Methodical, moody and breezily reflective...has a slow-footed pacing but registers with quiet resonance in its message about lingering environmental indifference and the retaliation against the establishment that allows for such blatant negligence.
November 8, 2018
Captivating performances from Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning propel Night Moves into a league of its own, whose tension is felt romantically, ethically and emotionally.
February 4, 2018
The stakes are real... but so are the costs of action and "Night Moves" is all about responsibility.
September 26, 2017
This is Eisenberg's most introspective performance to date, and taking cues from his performance, the film unfolds with a steady, measured pace.
September 2, 2017
So much potential overshadowed by poor execution that begs the all important question: Why should we care?
August 15, 2017
[Night Moves] can be a bit one-note at times, but watching the characters live in and respond to the trouble they've caused for themselves is half the fun.
June 20, 2017
Reichardt's work explores themes of isolation in a society that is slowly coming undone at the edges.
September 22, 2016
Succeeds mightily when it comes to creating tension but struggles a little more with making its plot run together smoothly.
August 10, 2016
Reichardt's richly drawn characters make it often fascinating, as we observe their contradictions and very human failings, and finally build to a daringly unresolved finale.
June 6, 2016
If Night Moves is a misstep-and it is-it's a testament to Reichardt's talent that, all things considered, it's still a pretty good film.
June 5, 2016
The film makes a good point-often those zealously caring about dead deer enough to dynamite a dam are hyper-focused to the point of oddly lacking compassion for fellow humans.
April 13, 2016
Night Moves calls us (inadvertently or not) to reconsider our definition of what's "natural." Certainly, some of the ways we've failed to care for the planet as we were charged back at the beginning have had dire consequences. Let's not ignore that.
September 2, 2015
The film serves as a reminder that our greatest fear isn't necessarily getting caught in the act; it's getting caught down the line.
February 19, 2015
Reichardt has crafted a mesmerising, unsettling film about the ripple effects of our decisions and how we live with them.
January 19, 2015
The actors in the story give very good performances. The story is fairly solid. It is a bit subdued and there are some logical holes in it, but on the whole it is a fairly realistic scenario.
January 12, 2015
The actors give down-to-earth but emotionally charged performances distinguished by a subsurface simmer that sometimes intensifies into a slow boil.
October 20, 2014
I'm a great admirer of Reichardt's work, but having watched 'Night Movies' twice, I have to concede that it's something of a dud.
