Many films are easy to recognize immediately as being of the moment, but few feel as excitingly jacked in to the current social climate as How to Blow Up a Pipeline. Based on last year’s controversial manifesto by Andreas Malm, which argued for violent sabotage as the only viable method to effectively fight climate change, director Daniel Goldhaber’s fictionalized adaptation firmly puts the “how” back in the book’s title in thrillingly dramatizing what these actions could and probably should look like. Goldhaber frenetically drops us into the midst of a plot already underway, in which a ragtag group of climate activists from different backgrounds conspire to blow up a West Texas oil pipeline. By the time it reaches its heart-pumping finale, Goldhaber’s live-wire spectacle has vigorously situated itself as a cinematic rage against the machine of the most urgently provocative kind.—Slant Magazine
