The Frozen Ground gets Two-thumbs Up from me.
Walker has done an excellent job of crafting and assembling this taut, well-paced movie.
Cusack delivers an excellent, tightly-strung performance. Cage's presence is understated and very solid (a welcome return to the stylistic approach reminiscent of Leaving Las Vegas). Hudgens' performance weaves a fabric of credibility - I appreciated her capacity to successfully portray a blend of sadness, intensity and tenderness.
Scott Walker's debut, as both Writer and Director, is impressive. In addition to his elegant approach to creating and building tension, Walker manages to achieve a dramatic experience while clearly preserving a sensitive respect for the victims.

Drug use was too explicit, but it is based on true facts. 1980's I remember the story, but not all the facts.....
