The Discovery - An interesting Sci-Fi premise. This is the sort of film you'd expect from the likes of Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij. (B+)
I don't know? I guess you haven't watched any of the Brit Marling / Zal Batmanglij film? Did you like Sense8?
[SPOILERS] Answers and thoughts from a Brit Marling & Zal Batmanglij Q&A
A4. Lately Im a big fan of the work of Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij.
Saw a very interesting movie last night called "The East" directed by Zal Batmanglij and starring Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgård, and Ellen Page. It is about a Private Security Operative who is asked to infiltrate an ecoterrorist group. Along the way she starts to understand and appreciate their motivations. It is thought provoking, very well acted and highly recommended by Laura and I.

Now watching Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page in Zal Batmanglij's The East
Watched, "The East" and it's pretty good. Not sure why Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij keep writing about cult group behaviors but... okay.
Never thought I'd ever like a leftist film but 'The East' is an interesting thriller about a cult of Eco Terrorists...!! How refreshing it is to see a thriller with a cool female protagonist..!! Loved the mood and tone of the film...!! Brit Marling is such a vast talent... The gorgeous young Indie film maker..!! Hope Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling make more Sociopolitical thrillers..!!!
There's a lot to like about Zal Batmanglij's THE EAST; it's tense, thought-provoking, well-performed & stars the talented Brit Marling (1/2)
The East - Dir - Zal Batmanglij. 4 out of 5. Tight little thriller that gets a little sloppy at the end. Brit Marling is a star.
TheEast: Zal Batmanglij strikes again, with a simple but efficient ecologic spy movie. Good actors, Brit Marling is incredible.
3/4 stars Making a film which attempts to empathize with terrorists is a very difficult task. I know this because just saying so probably raised a few eyebrows. Just the word'terrorist' comes with a very specific image; an image which is dehumanizing and incredibly simplistic. Don't misunderstand me, I'm not at all suggesting that we sympathize with such people. All I'm trying to get across is that the issue is much more complicated than that. Understanding a problem is a very important part of solving it. It's nice to know that screenwriter/actress Brit Marling and director Zal Batmanglij understand the importance of empathy and are able to use it as a great storytelling tool. The East stars Marling as a former federal agent who now has a career at Hiller Brood. Her first assignment is to go undercover within The East. The East are an eco-terrorism group led by Benji (Alexander Skarsgard) who target large corporations and pharmaceutical companies who profit off of their damage to the environment and t ...
Suspenseful, ludicrous, fascinating, and utterly unsubtle, Zal Batmanglij's "The East" plays like an unholy mash-up of "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and "Alias." The film builds on the themes of cult and identity that Batmanglij and his star Brit Marling explored artfully in their breakout debut "The S...
