Winter's Bone

2010 · 1hr 40min · R
Metacritic · IMDb · iTunes · Netflix · Amazon

A breathtaking and bone-chilling achievement in unflinching storytelling, with powerful acting by Lawrence and Hawkes. It gets under your skin with a slow, quiet, and merciless descent into gruesome circumstances in a way that more dramatically grandiose films never could. But I can't imagine myself ever watching it again, which exhumes an old conundrum with a newer, more acute example. How many points should rewatchability/enjoyment account for? Can a brilliantly crafted but revolting film be #1?
