Bob R.’s review published on Letterboxd:
"The East" is a really good (albeit chilling) depiction of the infiltration of radical environmental groups by corporate security firms. The cast is great, the premise is sadly true to reality. The "radicals" are painted in a positive manner, yet not piously so. I found myself pulling for them (and against the protagonist's employers) the whole time. There's a sense of danger running throughout "The East". The vibe isn't entirely different from that of the terrific documentary "The Cove", or to a lesser extent, David Fincher's "Fight Club". Highly recommended.
