  • One of those movies that arrives every now and then with no fanfare but a canny sense of how to grab our attention and hold it in a tightening grip. show more

  • Cold in July never actually turns into the film you think it's going to, and even if that means there's a few unanswered questions ricocheting around your head as the credits roll, it also provides real, rich pleasures as it zigzags into the darkness. show more

  • Pulp fiction doesn't come much better than Cold in July, a gritty, grisly - and perversely giddy - crime yarn directed by Pottstown-born indie-film provocateur Jim Mickle. show more
