When Doug (Cris Lankenau), a college dropout, lands a night-shift job at a Portland, Ore., ice factory, director Aaron Katz’s mild comedy seems to be taking a satirical look at lackadaisical ambition in an age of scarce employment. But then Doug learns that his ex-girlfriend (Robyn Rikoon) has fallen into some murky dark business, at which point Cold Weather becomes the world’s first mumblecore ”thriller? — a good idea for a movie that someone, in the future, should execute a bit less lackadaisically.
