A perceptive ensemble drama in which the viewer becomes invested deeply with the characters despite so many loose ends; director David Gordon's Green direction is as sure-handed as ever, and keeps you enthralled despite the movie never really going anywhere. FInal Grade: B

If you like your movies dark with no punches pulled this is one to see. Despite the first name on the poster, this is Sam Rockwell's movie, who gives and intense performance as the unstable, suicidal and I just found Jesus Glenn. As with many movies that focus on different characters throughout, some stories are more interesting than others, but overall there wasn't a huge slip in quality.

Deftly Crafted

This film is deftly crafted into three parts: the way the characters are prior to a life-changing event, the life-changing event, and the way the characters are after the life-changing event. As unoriginal as that sounds, writer-director David Gordon Green is able to do something different–may it comes to different camera angles, unexpected twists in events and character development, or fusing genres together in some scenes. This film definitely reminded me of “The Ice Storm” because of its setting, “Gone Baby Gone” during its most emotional moments, and “No Country for Old Men” during the heart-pounding scenes. Green was able to take all of these things, make it his own, and tell a poignant story about relationships, flaws, and the virtue of forgiveness. I’ve never seen Kate Beckinsale s...

Snow Angels - A showcase of master craftmanship!

David Gordon Green makes an overwhelmingly powerful film about human relationships in Snow Angels. The film interweaves a couple of interesting plot lines, mostly to show the wide range of human relationships, and how each one is considerably different despite being put in the same town/city. Green decided to give certain plot line's more time than others, which was a wise choice because the most powerful one is wisely chosen as the film's strong and sturdy backbone.

Kate Beckinsale is the star and heart of the film. Her performance is Oscar worthy and deserves to be seen by all the doubters who saw Pearl Harbor or Underworld. Like many of the other performances in Snow Angels, Beckinsale's portrayal is two-dimensional, meaning her character is multi-layered, something I just can't get...
