Twelve Days of Questionable Xmas #5 – The Ice Harvest

A mob heist movie featuring a lawyer, a pornographer, a strip club manager, and a bar owner, that takes place on Christmas Eve? I’m in. The Ice Harvest is a dark comedy to be sure. It’s funny, but not in a way that will have you feeling good about the things you laughed at. The actors in this flick, Cusack and Thornton especially, deliver some of their best work. There are tons of twists and turns in this movie and each one is more enjoyable than the last. The fact that there is a somewhat happy ending is just icing on the cake. I love this film. Words really fail this film. It needs to be seen. It is honestly an overlooked gem and a wonderful Christmas movie.
