I watched the Ice Storm this weekend. It came out in 1997 and was directed by Ang Lee who went to direct, Brokeback Mountain.
Since I'd seen Brokeback Mountain, I was able to see clearly Ang Lee's directional style. Beautiful cinematophography, dark and dramatic. Problem was, it was dysfunctional and depressing.
Not a single likeable character, and then just when you think it can't get any worse, it has a horribly depressing ending.
I'm all for a good dark drama and like a little coffee with my sugar, but this was too much for me.
