Night Moves, drama, rated R, The Screen, 2.5 chiles

Kelly Reichardt’s Night Moves is a ’60s movie trapped in the 21st century. Take away a few contemporary identifiers like cell phones, and you’re back in the era of Vietnam protests, Weathermen, and antiwar radicals who dreamed of peace and justice and went after it with bombs. Night Moves also has the spare, stripped-down feel of films of that day — a time of anarchy in the movie industry, when the old Hollywood establishment was being rocked by iconoclastic young raging bulls and easy riders who seized the means of production and turned out entertainment and ideology for a generation thirsty for relevant fare that did not involve gladiators or noble surgeons or the shoes of the fisherman.
