Kelly Reichardt’s Night Moves is a ‘60s movie trapped in the 21st century. The director has set her tale in the Pacific Northwest, where a small band of radical activists, outraged at the destructive effect of hydroelectric dams on the environment, has decided to blow up a massive dam. Reichardt doesn’t engage in a lot of proselytizing, although in the very telling she can’t escape projecting a point of view. Her characters are young people without a sense of history: these kids have no working memory of the Vietnam era, when acts of explosive protest terrorism sometimes went tragically wrong. This is a movie that evokes the ‘60s without remembering them. Rated R. 112 minutes. The Screen, Santa Fe. See review.
