Re: RARA-AVIS: Night Moves (mild spoiler)

Night Moves is a fave of mine. I agree with Mark B that it gets better with repeated viewings. I also agree with Bill that Melanie Griffith is pretty memorable.

That downbeat ending is very seventies, as is the rest of the movie. Although Night Moves was a bit more literal in its final metaphor of futility, its fit in well with those of other great movies of the era -- Chinatown, Conversation, Mean Streets, Two Lane Blacktop (dir. Monte Hellman, also dir of Willeford's Cockfighter and exec. prod of Reservoir Dogs), etc.

As a matter of fact, this reminds me, I've been meaning to pick up a copy of it.
