The best film of 1997
I went to see this film with one of my friends, in a cinema I had never been to before. It was one of those rare and delightful experiences where you are the only people in the theatre. No one around to distract you. No kids munching on crisps, or couples quietly muttering sweet nothings, or idiots trying to tell the characters what to do. It was great.
The film was just brilliant. It really nearly broke my heart. Every performance is perfect. The direction by Ang Lee is deliberate and painful as he slices into you with the lives of those he makes you watch. It looks amazing, in a beautifully bleak way. It is also one the most compelling and painful movies that I have ever come across. The family life portrayed is messed up and all the relationships that are displayed are disfunctional on some level or other. But still I was forced to care for them – all of them. Such is the brilliance of the acting and the script writing.
I own this film, but I can’t watch it alot. Once a year is just enough. It’s to traumatic and beautiful to watch more than that.
Best movie in penetrating average American lifestyle. Remarkable, melancholy.Five Stars, vote 9 out of 10.
I was astonished to find out how many bad reviews in this site for “Ice Storm” here. I voted 9 out of 10 without hesitating. I’ve seen this movie twice, and the 2nd time was even more disturbing in a remarkable sense, which compelled me into a deep thinking mode. Phillip, (on the message board), you’re so right! `Ice Storm’ was indeed a gem that entitles equally what “American Beauty” has earned. Both movies were focusing on the American mid-class’s love lives, their middle-aged marriage crisis, and teenagers beguiled by sex. `Ice storm” was filmed in a musically melancholic tune than `American Beauty’. It’s about life, brutally honest, and objective. It’s about the rotten love lives of average American couples, inwardly, those who would dare to break the rules, for exchanging a moment of stealing pleasure, such as Sigourney Weaver; Kevin Kline, who has surrendered to sexual seduction; Jane Ellen, Kevin Kline’s wife, frustrated by the dysfunctional marriage, yet tuning away from sexual liberation. Sadly, the victims of typical contemporary Hollywoodia pace has found `Ice Storm’ a `slow and dull’ movie that makes them yawning. Why not simply obtain satisfactions over weeping for an affected Hollywood’s love tale `Titanic’. Other noteworthy, is the music scores of `Ice Storm’ is depressing, enchanting, very beautiful.
