Dir. Matt Reeves. 2008, 85 mins. 35mm. With Michael Stahl-David, T. J. Miller, Odette Yustman, Jessica Lucas, Lizzy Caplan. A twentysomething party in New York City is derailed by an alien invasion in this found-footage thriller produced by J. J. Abrams. A precursor to Trash Humpers, and much admired by French cineastes, Cloverfield combines shaky handheld footage from a professional high-definition camera and a consumer camcorder to propose a cinema vérité for the digital age.
