"Home - New I was expecting this to be something transcendant and was kind of let down when it was just really good. It's got this amazingly toned down style and pace and without expectations I would have adored it."

Winter's Bone

“I read the novel Winter’s Bone by Daniel Woodrell and felt like I could smell the mountain air, see the grey landscape and knew every psychological problem and feeling of main heroine Ree Dolly. In a novel that’s relatively short, with simple vocabulary but tense and disturbing atmosphere, Woodrell recreated an entire section of the country that most people never even give a second thought. It was not a pretty sight. I thought that a film adaptation would be doomed to fail. It couldn’t possibly find an actress to accurately play Ree, it wouldn’t capture the way that time seems to not exist in the Ozarks. Too much of the subtle minutia of the unwritten laws and hermetically sealed societies couldn’t possibly be translated properly. I was dead wrong.

Maybe it’s because ” read more

Good!

“Winter's Bone is a movie with hicks. It is hardcore stereotype towards hicks, but its just a movie. Jennifer Lawrence signs in this movie, and defiantly deserved her Oscar nomination. John Hawkes was really good and was very impressive. The story really came together very well and the screenplay was really well written. Its a movie you should see, it scares, and gets your heart pumping.” read more

Dry as a Bone...

“"I'd be lost without the weight of you two on my back. I ain't going anywhere."

Reminiscent of 2009's The Road and Precious, the moviemakers behind Debra Granik's Winter's Bone were incapable of realising the distinction between profundity and plain old bleakness. Thus, Winter's Bone is yet another textbook implementation of the misplaced belief that "gritty, grim and real" automatically means that a film is a masterpiece. While Granik's picture indeed features a plethora of focused performances and a handful of gripping moments, nothing else exists to sustain interest or to prevent the narrative from descending into boredom and tedium. Plus, a number of hokey, contrived factors lethally hinder the "realism" approach. With the above in mind, I guess it's unsurprising that Winter'” read more
