The East

Directed by Zal Batmanglij
Written by  Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling

This was a pretty enjoyable thriller. Some morally interesting ideas throughout. It had a bunch of cool story elements however the final act wasn't acted out with enough suspense. It's odd, this film lacked a sense of aggression. It felt like the writers were afraid of offending. It also lacked a sense of identity, it failed to leave a proper impression on me. Toby Kebbell as the Doc provided my favourite performance and Marling in the main role worked well. 

Anyone else watched this?

I should probably catch the other films of the Brit Marling circle of filmmakers at some point too.

well if you're a fan of her at all, thats kind of required viewing.
and i guess i mean that she has this vibe and charisma to her that is so beautiful it doesn't even seem natural.
