The Ice Storm

Ang Lee USA, 1997

Endless Eye's rating of the film Der Eissturm

"Ice Storm" really captures the feeling of banality to a tee in this 1997 release, it has a good cast, and manages to pull off a few bizarre and humorous scenes. But to be honest, I found it heavy-handed, boring, and not able to offer much back to the faithful viewer who wastefully dedicated 2 hours watching it.
