The Ice Harvest

(USA, 2005, 90 minutes)

A crooked lawyer and a mob henchman steal two million dollars from their common employer on Christmas Eve, but getting away with it is a whole different matter. Dullish, predictable attempt at dry-witted film noir whose economic script and solid performances required more committed handling.
