What did I have: tomato soup
What did I watch: Cold Weather (2010)
What is it about: “An avid Sherlock Homles reader and university drop-out teams up with his sister and a co-worker to uncover a mystery in his hometown of Portland.”
How was it?: tomato-y*
What was I supposed to be doing: not sure, it can wait.
Recommended to: people who like stuff, stuff like Quiet City, perhaps. Those people.
like the director’s equally tranquil Quiet City, this film takes it’s sweet time building up to the climax, rather unceremoniously. There’s a simplicity and grace to the film otherwise lacking in the mystery thriller genre, which is all gun shots and car-chases. Similarly, the film’s lower-than-usual stakes, lack of action, and minimized plot might turn some viewers off.
