From “follow sweetness”

One of the most insightful reviews to date of Winter’s Bone, read the full review here.

…as she doses off on account of the pain reliever the film briefly leaves a fully naturalistic wash and gives us an impressionistic tour through another reason ree doesn’t want to lose her home (that is, other than not wanting to look for housing for her siblings and mother – who’s hidden somewhere internally deep due to recent troubles) – the land.  this sequence allows granik to reach behind the armor lawrence so brilliantly constructs for ree and expose one of the nightmares she must fret about behind those eyes –  that of timber cut for profit – those squirrels losing their home and even less insulation against the chilly winds for all of us…
