ON FILM: Night Moves (1975)

Gene Hackman always looks like he's about to smack the shit of someone.
I've never read The Wake of the Perdido Star. It's like a lot of things, I guess. There just isn't enough time in the world to do everything we'd like to do. Unfortunately, what that entails, essentially, is consuming different forms of media. Is that all life is anymore, the full extent of our species' ambition? Self medicating ourselves with a steady stream of images and sounds, flashes of light and the occasional printed word which we've pretentiously and callously convinced ourselves is a valid appreciation of art and beauty? Is that the noblest endeavor we can conjure? One day, every one of us will be worm food. What the fuck do you have to say to that? Night Moves is rated R and directed by Arthur Penn with a running time of 100 minutes. Distributed by Warner Brothers. 4.5/5 stars
