New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: Arctic Movie Reivew: Survival story as sadism

By Andrea Thompson

In its starting moments, and for most of the first half, Arctic comes across exactly as it’s obviously meant to, which is a lean, suspenseful tale of survival. It’s mostly a showcase for the quiet power of Mads Mikkelsen, who has already crashed his plane in the middle of an unforgiving frozen landscape in the film’s opening shots.
