Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
This is a slacker detective story, emphasis on the slack, and if you can downshift into its loping rhythms, it's pretty wonderful.

By Roger Ebert
Good in so many subtle ways, I despair of doing them justice.

Cold Weather is partly a movie with an actual plot, not just a portrait of young twentysomethings adrift in unfulfilling circumstances.

Cold Weather, good movie

By everyweek60706
A sweet and (in my opinion) scary story of young adults and their friendships with strangers. This is the first Aaron Katz (Nights & Weekends 2008, Quiet City 2007, Dance Party, USA 2006) movie I've...

Low budget, no talent, painful experience

AWFUL. DULL. TEDIOUS. BORING. AMATEURISH. Had a good premise with promise. Lost it....

Cold Weather is by far the worst movie of the season (so far). I like Aaron's previous work but this film is such a waste of time and money. Don't bother with it. Utterly disappointing....
