Winter’s Bone (2010)

Winter’s Bone sized up to be a fairly capable movie, certainly not as good as others have made it out to be; but far above the Hollywood drivel that is constantly churned. The acting is dynamite as is the turmoil and emotional draw. The film manages to keep things mysterious, mainly by employing the dumb/silent/crazy male-figure, the allure of American rural backwater poverty, and the strength of subjugated women. Yet it runs a bit dry and cycles through the same themes and motifs, beating the same dead horse so to speak.
