The East

The East ★★★½

Going into The East I expected an experience similar to that of Sound of My Voice. After all, the concept is very similar, and the writing/directing/lead are all the same.

However I was pleasantly surprised that the acting has improved dramatically. Unfortunately the dialogue seemed to take a step backward, which is a shame because dialogue was my big positive takeaway in Sound of My Voice.
Maybe it's not fair to compare the two films, as they're not actually sequels.

That being said, The East is a great follow up for Batmanglij. It's smart, thrilling and worth the watch.
