  • Writer-director Andrew Okpeaha MacLean, who in his feature debut has lashed together a sturdy vehicle for unadorned morality and pragmatic justice. show more

  • In most respects, On the Ice is the kind of straight-ahead, underprivileged-teen drama beloved of Sundance audiences. show more

  • This is an uncommonly involving thriller. I could call it a film noir, except that the sun never sets in the film. That makes a perfect contrast with the only other feature filmed in Barrow, the vampire movie "30 Days of Night" (2007), in which it never rises. show more

    A rather slow developing plot makes this movie drawn out. The look at Inuit lifestyle, though, makes it worth the time to watch it.
