  • You leave The East with a hunger to know more and a good idea of where to look. For Marling and Batmanglij that counts as mission accomplished. For audiences, it’s that rare thing these days – a movie that matters. show more

  • As the cracklingly cool The East shows, they’re the real deal. It’s not easy to make a thriller where brains and guts are so clearly in cahoots. show more

  • Batmanglij balances emotional tension with practical danger nicely, a must in a story whose activist protagonists can make no distinction between the personal and the political. show more

    I would join these people if I could. People who make their riches off of exploiting the poor, poisoning the planet and it\'s inhabitants should have extremist like these to fear.

    There was a slow pulsating whooshing sound in the background throughout the movies. I suspect it was in the sound system (19th & Brdwy in NYC). Very annoying. Two stars off for that.
