If the primary purpose of cinema is to show us things we're unable to see in our dull real lives, and to allow the viewer to experience an unfamiliar situation vicariously, then nobody has more use for "snow movies" than Lodians. So you don't feel like trekking up to the mountains on a day trip in order to get your fix of that elusive white wonder, take a trip to the video store instead and check out these frosty treats, which for my money offer more thrills than any old ski slope.

STONE COLD KILLERS: Whenever I think of snow, one vision immediately leaps into my mind: that iconic image from the Coen Brothers' jet-black crime comedy "Fargo," depicting down-on-his-luck cars salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) approaching his car parked in a desolate lot blanketed by a sheet of white. Finding frost on his windshield, he attempts to scrape it off and in the process launches into a temporary temper tantrum/panic attack.
