This film is billed as a “thriller.” After seeing it, I can’t agree less. Kristen Stewart plays movie star Jean Seberg (Breathless) who became an ardent supporter of the black power movement in ’60s LA. To suppress her activism, the FBI launched an effort to discredit her involvement and destroy her career. Some might construe it as underplayed, but I think Stewart is at her most wooden in this role. To make matters more unfortunate, the bland writing and lax direction do little to create even a smidgen of tension. A “thriller” it isn’t, but it is a story of government overreach in a dry, dull package. (Criterion Cinemas only)
