4.0 out of 5 stars Great performances! September 30, 2008
Format:DVD
I was sucked in by all of the magnificent performances of this drama/tragedy. This film is slow but none of the scenes are wasted. All of the performances are outstanding but Sam Rockwell clearly surpassed the others as a man who found God after he tried to commit suicide. His gradual mental deterioration throughout the movie was heartbreaking and poignant to watch. I felt empathy for all the characters even though they are quite depressing and definitely aren't perfect people. See it for the realistic and contemplative character study and fabulous performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars snow angels dvd July 15, 2009
Format:DVD
This movie could have been plucked from the current headline news in any small town in America. However, the director and writers decided to take us behind the scenes of what leads up to these all too common tragedies. I was very surprised and impressed with Kate Beckinsale in this movie, I had only seen her in previous roles which did not prepare me for her very strong peformance. Sam Rockwell has done several roles playing unsavory characters ranging from child molester to sex addict. I mistakenly thought he was going to be different in this movie, a normal every day person for a change. Boy was I wrong! This movie does a great job in showing the vivid contrast between a normal relationship and a dysfunctional relationship. This movie was done very gritty and realistic which makes it all the more disturbing at the final end. This movie will depress the hell out of you and make you feel hopeful at the same time. The scenes will linger in your mind for awhile. Not a movie to view before bedtime, it will give you some nightmares. I highly recommend it all the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars WHY WASN'T THIS IN THEATERS?? September 21, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I REMEMBER SEEING A TRAILER FOR THIS MOVIE, AND WANTED TO SEE IT IN MY LOCAL THEATER BUT IT NEVER CAME, INSTEAD WE HAD SEVERAL SHOWINGS OF INFERIOR MORE COMMERCIAL CRAP, BUT THAT BEING SAID I BOUGHT THIS DVD NOT REALLY KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT AND WHILE IT TOOK A WHILE TO DRAW ME IN, I WAS CAPTIVATED BY THE CHARACTERS AND THEIR INTERLOCKING PERSONAL LIVES WITH THEIR PERSONAL DEMONS, WHILE I DON'T WANT TO MAKE THIS OUT TO BE A CHICK-FLICK, IT DOES HAVE ONE VERY SWEET TEEN-AGE ROMANCE, IT IS MAINLY A CAPTIVATING DRAMA BETWEEN ANNIE (KATE BECKINSALE) HER EX-HUSBAND GLENN (SAM ROCKWELL)WHO ARE COMPLICATED, FLAWED AND VERY COMPELLING CHARACTERS, OVER-ALL THIS IS A VERY WELL WRITTEN, EXTREMELY WELL ACTED MOVIE, I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS MOVIE FOR ADULTS, I DON'T THINK YOUNGER PEOPLE WHO HAVEN'T MADE PAINFUL MISTAKES IN THEIR PERSONEL LIVES YET WILL APPRECIATE IT AS MUCH AS I DID.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Haunting, Extremely Well-Told Story April 4, 2008
David Gordon Green is a bit of a critic's darling. He makes good films, but their hyperrealism makes them a little difficult for me to watch. He first came to the attention of many with "George Washington", a very-independent look at some young kids in a very depressed town who come together during one fateful day. With each successive film, Green has earned the accolades of more and more people. He has also captured the attention and the right to work with a larger, more eclectic, more established group of actors. Whether this adds anything to the films is debatable. It could simply be his skill.

I have to admit that with each of his new films, I come to appreciate his skill a little more. It isn't necessarily that his films are getting "More Hollywood", but they are getting more accessible.

And the actors seem to be flocking to him, eager to star in his next film; with "Snow Angels", his latest work, he has brought together his most eclectic and perhaps most talented cast yet.

Set in an unnamed northern town somewhere were snow seems to be on the ground more often than not, the High School marching band is practicing their formations, and the practice is not going well, to the chagrin of their director, when two shots ring out. Arthur (Michael Angarano, many television and film credits, he played Jack's son on "Will and Grace") turns to look and his girlfriend, Lila (Olivia Thirlby, "Juno") watches him as he becomes concerned. Flashing backwards an indeterminate amount of time, the film picks up at the beginning. Annie (Kate Beckinsale, her best performance) and Barb (Amy Sedaris, going for the dramatic here) are two friends who work as waitresses in the town's Chinese Restaurant.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite A Surprise... October 12, 2008
Format:DVD
This film is an interesting, if a bit flawed, trip into the lives of several small-town families and friends.

A co-worker lent me the DVD without explaining any of the story. I had no expectations and subsequently found the movie to be pretty absorbing. The slowly unfolding story and the stark relationships of the characters intrigued me and I wanted to delve deeper into why it is so hard for them to understand each other. But the film, however, doesn't focus on the complexity of the relationships and instead shifts to an over-sentimentality which, at that point in the film, overshadows the actual sentiment of the picture.

In retrospect, the movie has a few flaws, one of which includes an extremely ornate second half. If I had to compare this to another movie it would be to the far superior 'American Beauty'.

If your curious about this title, I'd say rent it first before you buy-there's plenty of good film making here but there are also many flaws in the story and characters. 2 and 1/2 stars.

Great movie. Sam Rockwell is at the top of his game and the rest of the cast is pretty good, too. Very sad, unexpected, and most importantly, enjoyable.

The story goes nowhere. It goes around and around in circles. Waste of time. It is a good antidote for those who are suffering from insomnia.
