Being a nice guy in Hollywood seems oxymoronic. I've never heard anyone refer to me as that, but it's very sweet. I don't know, that's like being called the humblest banker. If you're a working actor, you're in a very, very small percentage of very fortunate people. I think 97 per cent of union actors are out of work, and that's actors in the union.
Kelly Reichardt has made her career on the fringes of the Hollywood system, making complex, austere films on tiny budgets, and building up a reputation for a singular vision. But, with Night Moves, a generic take on the moral questions associated with terrorism, Reichardt's vision feels blinkered.
Night Moves is about three environmental activists who blow up a dam. The first 15 minutes warn us that there are going to be some painfully unnecessary scenes laced with unnatural dialogue.
