The Last Winter. 2006. USA. Directed by Larry Fessenden. Screenplay by Fessenden, Robert Leaver. With Ron Perlman, James Le Gros, Connie Britton. 101 min.
An influential New York indie filmmaker who has put his stamp on nearly every pulp genre, Larry Fessenden conceals his alarming (and farsighted) vision of global warming within a tale of horror and mystery worthy of Melville or Poe. When an American oil company sends an advance team to set up a drilling site in the brutally unforgiving Northern Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, inexplicable madness and death follow closely behind.
