The East (2013)

A private intelligence agent finds herself inside a eco-terrorist cell.

  • I like the premise of the story even though it's an old concept (of having a character be a spy in some kind of organization)

  • Am I the only one who felt like the movie felt indie? I don't even know if i'm making any sense. The movie had artistic vibe to it. Slow pacing, large moments of silence and emotion etc.

  • I like how the cell gave off hippy vibes but were quite creative in achieving their goals.

  • the [INSERT NOBLE AND MORAL CAUSE HERE] VS. Evil Corporate America trope appears here which I usually don't like because it usually seems contrived. However, it's not bad in this movie.

  • some of the characters are naive, but what do you expect from an environmentalist group?

  • overall, it's a pretty good spy movie which is worth the watch if don't mind something a bit slower paced

in a nutshell

pretty good spy movie
