Editorial Reviews

After abandoning a promising academic career in forensic science, self-styled detective Doug (Cris Lankenau) returns to Portland, Oregon to live with his more responsible big sister Gail (Trieste Kelly Dunn, The Craigslist Killer). He lands a dead-end job working in an ice factory, but soon finds an opportunity to use his passion and skill in detective work when his ex-girlfriend Rachel (Robyn Rikoon, In Treatment) goes missing. Enlisting a team of ramshackle slacker-sleuths, Doug leads the way down a complex trail of clues that brings him increasingly close to discovering the mysterious truth about Rachel.

I just finished it and this the most excited I've been about a movie in a while. The slow start is all part of the plan so that when things start moving they can move quickly and we'll know the characters. If you aren't ready to see a movie that you could have easily bankrolled than yes skip it but if you want something that works on EVERY level and has several moments of real intensity watch this TONIGHT. I loved the little trick from NXNW and so much more. I only have one caveat, the ending is kind of abrupt, but the more I think about it the more it to works for me.

I was browsing the movie section of my local library the other day in search of an interesting movie, and fell upon this. Given the `polar vortex' that we have gone through recently, how appropriate it would be to watch a movie called "Cold Weather"!

"Cold Weather" (2010 release; 96 min.) brings the story of Doug (played by Cris Lankenau) and Gail (played by Trieste Kelly Dunn). As the movie opens, we see them having dinner with what turns out to be their parents. Indeed Doug and Gail are brother and sister, with Doug having moved in recently with her in Portland, OR. He has stopped his CSI-like forensic studies, and eventually takes a job at an ice factory. There, Doug becomes friends with a co-worker named Carlos. And Doug also runs into Rachel, an ex-girlfriend who has come for Chicago for work purposes. The four of them all get along great, and Carlos even develops a crush on Rachel. Then late one evening, a distraught Carlos comes to Doug's apartment, telling him Rachel didn't show up for a date. Doug now can use his limited experience in forensics to help his friend, and believes himself to be the next Sherlock Holmes. What has happened to Rachel? At this point we a good 30-35 min. into the movie, and to tell you more would spoil your viewing experience.

Couple of comments: first, this movie must be a labor of love from writer-director-editor and co-producer Aaron Katz. The movie is made on a shoestring basis, if that much. But it doesn't stop Katz from setting us up with a decent mystery-thriller. Second, the movie is set in Portland, and the Portland scenery plays as much a character in the movie as any of the lead stars. Third, the movie plays out nicely, that is until the very end, which came abrupt and left me scratching my head, to be honest.

This film was very absorbing. The characters were interesting and the Portland ambiance was palpable. The end was abrupt, but likely because we're accustomed to Hollywood endings that follow a formulaic rhythm. Sometimes situations just end. Just like that.

This film dragged on and on. It contained no real drama, danger or thrill. It seems there was an attempt to make comedy a small part of the movie but it just didn't work out. I became bored and went in my kitchen to make dinner without even getting to the end of it.

SPOILERS:

I can appreciate art house (low budget movies). Special effects traded for character development, multiple locations traded for quirkiness, dialog and wit, etc. I had high hopes for Cold Weather after seeing the Rotten Tomatoes review and reading the synopsis on Wiki. Unfortunately, it fell flat on many levels

Brother comes home to Portland from Chicago taking a hiatus from school and moving in with his sister. Brother takes a job working the night shift at an Ice House. Brother meets Carlos at the Ice House who is also a part time DJ. Brother's ex-girlfriend from Chicago comes to Portland seemingly for job training since taking a job as a Paralegal in Chicago with a law firm headquartered in Portland.

In concert with the synopsis above:

Brother and sister are both seemingly without many friends and seem to be almost morose. Without giving away too much of the plot, the ex-girlfriend disappears and is apparently not a Paralegal.

What I didn't like:

1.) The humor is all deadpan and while this would not normally be a problem for me, I just didn't find it all that amusing

2.) There is no back-story re: why the ex is in fact an ex?

3.) While I found the brother's connection to Sherlock Holmes interesting, it was not developed enough

4.) There are long pauses which didn't seem to go anywhere

In summary, I thought that the outline was great, though there was simply not enough done with it. I didn't find the mystery aspect all that interesting, the dialogue was not overly witty or profound and the character relationships were not explored with enough depth. I got the sense that the brother/sister relationship was near oedipal in nature (I.E.

I don't remember a movie showing in such a subtle way how one thinks and acts when one is an adult without having yet the maturity of an adult. On that point of view, the movie is remarkable.
The main characters are one young man, Doug, and his sister who live together in Portland. Doug has started studying forensics but works for now in an ice factory. We meet one of his co-workers who is a part-time DJ and Rachel, an old girlfriend of Doug.
The girlfriend gets into some trouble we know nothing about and disappears. It is a misdirection. One expect that she will be murdered and that Doug will use his freshly acquired forensic talents to discover the murderer, all this under the dark grey skies of Portland. But it is not the story at all. Doug has very little talent of observation and no forensic talent at all. It makes sense as he probably has learned from textbooks and has no practical experience, so he would not consider calling the police or wear gloves to protect the evidence.
The first thing he does is to buy a pipe to be like Sherlock Holmes "because it is going to help him think". That scene won me over. So 20 minutes into the film, I finally got what it was about: it is about this uncertain age...
So the mystery takes an unexpected direction; it is solved just like young people would solve it.
The movie has charm and is hard to forget. It suffers from very poor editing. I do not mind a slow movie at all, if the characters are interesting, but here the rhythms are all wrong: it starts too slow and ends too fast. I feel that the photography is not quite in tune with the intention and should be more intimate.
Maybe the next movie by the same people will be a great classic. Watch it!
