This is a lot more talk-y than the other Kelly Reichardt film I watched, but by Hollywood movie standards–and especially in comparison to the last movie I watched–it’s nearly silent. Which is okay, because that gives you a lot of time to think about what’s happening on screen. It builds tension like crazy, especially for how laid back it was, and the acting is fan-tabulous.*
Cost: $5.00, possibly $6.00.
Where watched: Hollywood Theater. Which is right on the 75 bus line. I need to go here more.
*Mmmmm. Peter Sarsgaard, why did you never become famous for your hunky good looks? Probably better that you didn’t, since your acting is so spot-on. Also Jesse Eisenberg is his usual wonder and it’s always nice to see Alia Shawkat.
