The East

The East ½

reductive, appropriately smug thriller about an inexperienced idiot tasked by a private security firm with an undercover operation to expose the world's most boldly incompetent ecoterrorists. despite a law-enforcement background she frequently violates the law (not maliciously but unthinkingly, jeopardizing the mission), and her naiveté and inability to reconcile her emotions with her job collide with their essentially suicidal audacity and sheer ineptitude to create literally fatal moral calamities that could have been avoided either by A) anybody knowing what the fuck they're doing or what's at stake or B) not making this massively stupid movie. runs an absolutely brazen two hours.
