Directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky

United States, 2012

Fargo has so embedded itself in the American film-going consciousness as a cold thriller, that anything with a suspense plot and snow now seems to warrant immediate comparisons, whether deserved or not. While many things can be leveled at Stefan Ruzowitzky’s thriller, including suspense and snow, Fargo­-like should not be one of them.

Addison (Eric Bana, closer to his Chopper menace than other recent roles) and Liza (Olivia Wilde) are brother and sister criminals on the run to the Canadian border in a small-town blizzard. After a car accident forces them to part ways Liza comes across Jay (Charlie Hunnam), a former Olympic boxer and ex-con, also on the run for his own reasons. All parties converge on Jay’s parents’ house (played by Kris Kristofferson and Sissy Spacek) for a tense Thanksgiving dinner.

The beginning of Deadfall is tense enough. »
