Overview

Writer-director Julia Loktev's Moment of Impact harrowing, claustrophobic thriller Day Night Day Night plunges the audience into the world of a suicide bomber just prior to her final, fatal act. As the film opens, a young woman played by Luisa Williams prays to an unknown, unspecified deity, then tucks away into a fleabag New Jersey motel room, when several hooded men arrive, arm her with explosives, and give her instructions to carry out. She then takes off alone, headed straight for Times Square, and making her way through clamoring throngs of real people -- any of whom could instantly become her casualties. Loktev strips away much of the external exposition, never revealing the central character's name, ethnicity, religious affiliation, or political background. The director thus forces the audience to focus, exclusively and unrelentingly, on the nature of the character's actions, and underscores the idea that terrorist motivations are, on some level, completely inconceivable to an outsider. Ironically, instead of turning the central character into a cipher and thus distancing her from the viewer, the film's stripped exposition terrifyingly draws the audience closer to the character. Josh Phillip Weinstein and Gareth Saxe co-star.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
In Day Night Day Night director Julia Loktev adopts the hand-held realist style of the Dardenne brothers to follow a young woman Luisa Williams as she prepares to blow herself up as a suicide bomber in Times Square. This deliberately provocative premise may overshadow its creatively conceived construction. The dramatic tension comes less from standard thriller plot devices, but from trying to figure out who the character is and where she's heading. Williams, working with minimal dialogue, delivers a wonderfully expressive performance, using her eyes to convey emotion. Loktev appears to be more interested in provoking questions of how we look at a charged event when it is taken out of a specific political context. The director deliberately strips her protagonist of any ideological and personal motivation. Does this reveal her core humanity or ignore unavoidable accentuating circumstances? The young woman is sweet and girlish. Is that meant to be endearing or absurd? Perhaps this is merely a metaphoric psychological portrait of a person in extreme circumstances. Her manipulations by the male characters seem to imply sexual, rather than religious, politics. Then why touch such a strikingly situational nerve? The ending, echoing the possibility of faint hope favored by the Dardennes, is slightly unbelievable. And at times the film is too enigmatic to sustain itself. However, in challenging us to face the humanity at the core of an unspeakable act, Loktev provokes tough and unexpected thoughts with no clear answers.
