WINTER'S BONE - REVIEW


Remember Deliverance? Sure you do. Well Winter's Bone is kind of like living in that world and trying to make sense of your life through communicating with all the creeps and weirdos around you. This is a very simple story told very well. At the heart of it are excellent performances and a subtly haunting overall atmosphere.

As we follow our main character through her desperate journey to find her (MIA) father, we slowly come to realise that everyone around her is not what they seem. Every creep has a heart and every seemingly good person is...frankly creepy making her search for anything ressembling sympathy, trust or help a bit of a nightmare to say the least.

Overall, Winter's Bone is a great-looking, detailed (yet never cluttered), dark and somewhat depressing little story but one that's definitely worth checking out.
