John Hawkes was wonderful in Deadwood, but his performance in Winter's Bone was so exquisite I have still not recovered. Makes me want to swing back and relish all his roles. I've seen some but there are so many more ... and more to come. Looking forward to seeing him in Arcadia at the Indy Film Fest.
Best movie I've seen so far this year. It's definitely not for everybody. Pretty dark, anxiety ridden movie with that "indie film" look, a female lead (on the verge of stardom) and John Hawkes impressive in another excellent role. Yes it's the "Winter's Bone" of 2011/2012. Depending on how the rest of the year shapes up this will end up around 7, 8 or 9 on my top 10 of the year.
