Critiquing Film, Television, and More

Quickie: Winter’s Bone (2010)

Jennifer Lawrence, accents, cocaine, squirrel hunting, abusive men, a Laura Palmer cameo, yelling, crying, chainsaws, and dogs equals Winter’s Bone. Similar to how I felt about Leave No Trace, I don’t have a whole lot to say about Debra Granik’s critically acclaimed film. They’re both…just…so…penny plain…to me…

However, I think if there’s one asset that places Winter’s Bone way and above Leave No Trace, it’s that it has some more genuine, tenacious tension to it and some meaty, creative obstacles. These strengths pretty much hoist Winter’s Bone to a “fresh” score for me. Plus, like I said before, “Jennifer Lawrence.” Nuff said.

Verdict: C+

“Winter’s Bone” is now available to rent and buy on YouTube, Amazon Prime, iTunes, Google Play, Vudu, and Netflix.
