The Late Show: Recent Rave!

One of our favorite recent thrillers (and maybe one of our favorite films of the year) is HOW TO BLOW UP A PIPELINE. A nailbiter of a procedural, PIPELINE follows a group of mostly strangers who have come together for a high-stakes act of extreme eco-protest by attempting to blow up an isolated length of oil pipeline. Director Daniel Goldhaber and editor Daniel Garber (both Harvard grads) develop an intense amount of suspense over a short period of time, all the while delivering an equally careful amount of character development. A must see on the big screen.

“It’s hard to think of another film as emphatically, passionately and furiously of the moment as this one.” – Wendy Ide, Observer (UK)

“Don’t sleep on Daniel Goldhaber’s ‘How To Blow Up A Pipeline’, one of the best films of 2023. Thrilling, urgent and angry, but as focused on the humans involved as the pressing issues at hand. Brilliantly structured and edited too. And a superb, insistent score by Gavin Brivik.” – Edgar Wright
