The Ice Harvest doesn't have much heft or resonance. But as an antidote to the sugary confections of the season, its hung-over cynicism works wonders. show more
The nasty, violent material has two small beacons of hope - Nielsen as a fair-weather stripper in the manner of old film-noir dames, and Quaid as a scurvy mobster who hates being cheated. With his puffy, reddened face, Quaid looks like a bad Santa. show more

It's a black comedy, not a 'comedy.' ******** not as well done as 'Montenegro' or 'Eraserhead.' I checked the DVD out of the library because I liked Connie Nielsen in 'The Great Raid.' The container read 'sexuality and nudity' so I figured I might see the tall Dane naked, like Nicole Kidman in 'Eyes Wide Shut.' Unfortunately, 'Ice Harvest' only contained strip club nudity, which I don't count, because the stars of the film are not nude. We had sooooo much more nudity in the 70's and 80's, yet women are more promiscuous now than they were back then. What gives?
