The Ice Storm – 1997

Ang Lee is a very talented director. There is no argument that Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain are his crowning achievements, but he has offered several other great films in his thirty years of filmmaking. One of those underrated, great films is The Ice Storm, a film about sexual revolution during the seventies. Utilizing the talent of Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver he weaves the lives of two families in and out exposing them to their own flaws and weaknesses. His direction is the strongpoint of the film and in the hands of a lesser director this film could have easily failed, but instead it is a masterpiece of the human condition.

The characters are all dangerously ignorant and it makes the movie that much better.

Great performances and painstakingly accurate, I think it earns…
