THE WICKER TREE (2011) reviewed by Eric Cohen



S'been awhile since I've posted a review to the blog and thought I'd try to add my two cents more than I have recently. Jeff's been doing a bang up job keeping the blog alive and I think the rest of us could do the same. It's a new year, the Oscar noms have been announced. Everyone's already posted their "Ten Best Of" lists. And so it goes.
