The Ice Storm

Ang Lee USA, 1997

Caden Cotard's rating of the film Der Eissturm

Subtle is the antithesis of this film, but The Ice Storm doesn't need it. Instead, it's a curious and clinical look at rich WASPs. An interesting subject for the director of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, I know, but it miraculously works. Mad props to the huge, phenomenally talented cast.
