The premise is simple but subversively eyebrow-raising in this tense indie ecological thriller: A crew of young environmental activists executes a daring mission to sabotage an oil pipeline in Daniel Goldhaber's taut and timely thriller that is part high-stakes heist, part radical exploration of the climate crisis. It’s based on the controversial book by Andreas Malm that argues for careful acts of sabotage as both moral and necessary to face the crisis of our planet. “The genius of the adaptation is that it transposes radical ideas into the entertainment of a heist movie and the pathos of a character study. It does both these things really, really well”—Drew Gregory, Autostraddle.
