Tis The Season For My Fave X-Mas Films & Specials (30 movies items)

"Frozen River is a story about the struggles of a white-trash family whose husbandless mother tries to smuggle illegal immigrants thru the Canadian/American border in order to make ends meet during the Holiday season. Now there's a Christmas story angle that Hollywood hasn't run into the ground (yet). "

"Babalarının terk ettiği çocuklara bakmak için her şeyi göze alabilecek bir annenin dramı... Çok büyük beklentiler içine girmeden izlemeniz gerektiğini en başta söylemem gerekiyor. Kendi içinde gayet orjinal bir senaryo ya sahip film, biraz fazla soğuk. Her yerin karlarla kaplı olduğu bir ortamda çekilmesiyle alakası yok elbette olayın. Amatörce kullanılan kamera ve çekimler filme değişik bir hava katmış olabilir ama içinde bulundukları dram yüklü durumu çok dah"

"It was ok, nothing that special. Melissa Leo was good, but I wouldn't exactly say she was worthy of an Oscar nomination.. It was realistic though, the characters were believably acted and I suppose it was a pretty good script. Also, it was really nice to see the lovely Charlie McDermott outside of The Middle. "

Top 10 of 2008 (10 movies items)

" It’s a shame that I never got a chance to write a formal, full-length review for this one. What a powerfully naturalistic drama this is. Melissa Leo is nothing short of amazing. This movie is extremely timely in that it deals with current hot-button issues such as the tightening of the economy and illegal immigration, and it does all of this in a non-urban setting with a limited number of characters. Frozen River is the best kind of combination of drama and thriller, with the latter part nev"
