Thin Ice DVD Review

Caper Comedy Featuring Star-Studded Cast Broke Through
To Blu-ray and DVD June 12
Hailed as “a crime twist worthy of Hitchcock and dialogue worthy of the Coen Brothers” (Screen Daily), Thin Ice arrived on Blu-ray and DVD June 12 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Starring Oscar-nominee Greg Kinnear (As Good AS It Gets, Little Miss Sunshine), Academy Award winner Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine), Billy Crudup (Almost Famous, Jesus’ Son) and Lea Thompson (Back To The Future), this intriguing caper premiered to critical praise at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

Mickey Prohaska (Kinnear) is a small-time insurance agent looking for a way to jump-start his business, reunite with his estranged wife (Thompson) and escape the frigid Wisconsin weather. This self-proclaimed master of spin believes that salesmanship is about selling a story — all he needs is a sucker willing to buy it.  He hits pay dirt with a lonely retired farmer (Arkin) who is sitting on something much bigger than an insurance commission.  But Mickey’s attempt to con the old man spins out of control when a nosy, unstable locksmith (Crudup) with a volatile temper dramatically ups the stakes, trapping him in a spiral of danger, deceit and double-crossing.
Thin ice is a story that seems familiar. People will do many things when they are down on their luck. For some, in the end, the odds must be justified. Thin ice does a good job at exploring this, as well as show how some people change in interesting (but not always positive) ways when they are faced with hard times, in order to adapt and survive.

Mickey seems to be failing life. He has swindled his ex wife, is losing himself in debt, and not doing so well with the job. His willingness to forget about honesty becomes apparent rather quickly as we see him betray morals and begin to steal.

One path leads to the next, and the movie asks and answers many questions and answers them all. It even gives answer to questions that were not asked, making you want to see it again. If you want my opinion, this film is a cleverly scripted piece of work that show what happens when everyone comes together to make a good movie.
