The East (2013)

Brit Marling is making a name for herself as an actress and also a writer on the movies she stars. That was the case in Sound of My Voice, Another Earth, and now The East. Here, Brit Marling infiltrates a group of anarchists who try to make justice by their own hands with attacks on major corporations. Stylistically, The East has its own identity, reminding the likes of Martha Marcy May Marlene, Winter's Bone or Another Earth (which director is shared with The East). This is not a comfortable movie. It has interesting morale and political points of view, but mostly it is a movie about characters. Marling is very well, along with Skarsgard, but there's something about Ellen Page that is starting to feel annoying. The movie does not feel pretentious, but I felt a certain aura that distanced it from the audience, like if it didn't want to be loved by everyone, but only by some of its viewers. It is solid for what it is, it is thrilling and can leave you thinking if you connect to it, feeling like a beautiful rose with a lot of thorns that will be loved by a specific audience.
