Slight SPOILER ALERT on this one guys, so go pop in your Criterion Blu-rays of The Ice Storm real quick before reading on. The titular storm in this flick may not be that dramatic from a visual standpoint, but it is downright malicious. This storm had the gall to down a power line right next to a train track in the precise window of time that baby Elijah Wood decided to have himself a sit. That’s no accident. That’s Mother Nature actin’ like a straight-up sociopath. At least the polar vortex has a benign scientific explanation behind it, according to the fifteen seconds of Googling I just did.
