REVIEW: THE EAST Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij - at the MOXIE, Springfield,MO

Batmanglij and Marling have written, directed, produced The East 
They have kept to the same theme of Alterity from 
Another Earth HERE
Sound of My Voice HERE

The Players
Director:Zal Batmanglij
Writers:Brit Marling
Zal Batmanglij
Actors:Alexander Skarsgård
Ellen Page
Brit Marling
Toby Kebbell
Shiloh Fernandez
Patricia Clarkson
Producers:Brit Marling
Ridley Scott
Shiloh Fernandez was the one who almost had Edward Cullen in his grasp but flunked his audition with Kristen Stewart. In The East he is wonderful as is everyone in this film. Marling and Batmanglij continue to explore identity boundaries and alterity, in The East with Eco Terrorists.

May I suggest reading BIFO on Singularities before judging the relevance of this film before reading most of the reviews. These two filmmakers should be on any serious movie goer's priority list. It is always exciting to be in the know in the beginning of extraordinary.
