Editorial Reviews

After a dope deal gone wrong, Atlanta street thug Curtis Snow starts filming his everyday life with a stolen camera. The footage he captures depicts the grittiness of his life on the harsh city streets where anything goes. Brutal and unforgettable, Snow on tha Bluff, is the most authentic look at life on the streets ever captured.

I watched the movie and felt uneasy seeing that this was on film because this lifestyle does relate to many "real ni**as" who do what they do for survival, and growth but I kept on watching. This is raw and interesting footage, and it does leaves viewers questioning its validity.

The Bluff may be a project that is rough for folks from Atlanta but me being from Miami, this film felt real light. After watching it twice over, I did realize that a lot of it was fictional, but it was done extremely well. I hope that there is a superior motive for the release of this film and that Curtis may handle the forthcoming successes with a strategic plan to better himself and his community.

I gave the film 5 stars because it relates to me, and my community. I wish the best for Curtis Snow.

This movie came across as a hard pill to swallow. I've lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years and the reality of it is, there are places like that, and people like these. The film goes into the life of a young man by the name of Curtis. He's a product of his environment and runs with his crew of young brothers. I have to point out, that while Curtis seems to be at least 27 in this movie, he's seldom found around kids 10 years younger than him. Basically he leads his team of misfits ass they run around the hood and pull licks (thefts) and celebrate with the team. The actions are usually reckless and leave you wondering if these guys are ignorant or just not afraid of jail- or death for that matter. However, the display of karma in the movie is well placed and recognized throughout the entire film. Curtis does suffer the repercussions for his actions. But with a lack of resources to even begin to straiten up, plus drug addiction fueled by emotional aggressive whims, we learn that our main character is stuck in his ways. With all this said the movie is true to the core. This is a superb depiction of the ignorant realities (especially in Atlanta) of when societies corner certain people and communities to the point where the need to survive outweighs the compassion for others. By cornering I mean societal, economical, and cultural neglect by the powers that be.

Snow On Tha Bluff is a crime/drama that plays out as a documentary (think "found footage" with a twist). The story follows Curtis Snow's life as a drug dealer after he steals a camera from some naive college kids. I highly recommend Snow On Tha Bluff.

What did I like? I enjoy the innovation this film brings to the found footage genre. It really feels like a realistic crime/drama film. It's a gritty and authentic portrayal of their lives. It's only an hour and 20 minutes, but it packs so much and it goes by fast; we see drug deals, robberies, and murders. It's has some powerful moments as well, like when Curtis Snow explains how the drugs have been in his family for a very long time and how his 2 year old son is in the same position as him. It's a controversial film because of how realistic it feels, so the actors did an amazing job.

What did i dislike? The ending was a little unfulfilling and abrupt. Some actions and dialogue felt off/forced.

Overall, it's a powerful and fast movie. It gives you a deep, authentic look into this lifestyle. As of 7/19/12, Snow on tha Bluff is available on Netflix Streaming you're still unsure, but it's definitely worth purchasing.

This movie has realistic violence and blood, excessive drug use and references, strong language, and brief nudity.

This is how it is in the TRAP and the streets of the Dirty South

A jolt of, uh, dope into the veins of the micro-indie/found footage scene, "Snow On Tha Bluff" is a wildly kinetic tour through one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the United States; an endlessly entertaining and captivating portrait of a "robbery boy" and crack dealer. Filmmaker Damon Russel completely disappears, letting subject Curtis Snow carry the entire film, resulting in gritty, authentic document of the culture and lifestyle in Atlanta's favorite little quarters.
Starting with an audience surrogate of sorts, a group of nervous college kids head to the Bluff (a crime ridden area in Atlanta) in hopes of scoring some drugs. The male in charge shotgun tapes the entire experience, likely to show to his buddies the "insane shit" they had done that day. Well, he gets more than what he bargains for once he meets the dealer Snow -- after encouraging them to taxi him to his home, he brandishes a gun and the camera abruptly shuts off. When it resumes filming the Bluffian passes it off to a friend, situating himself in front of the camera to detail his various exploits. From then on the movie operates in cinéma vérité style (with only a few passing acknowledgements to the presence of the camera), legitimately feeling like an amateur shooting his pals as opposed to an experienced cinematographer faking it.

While there is very little narrative to cling to, you won't care -- most of the interest is experiencing the undiluted way of living with someone very nestled into the lifestyle. It's nice to see the residents of the neighborhood with a non-judgmental eye, outside of the usual exploitative television program or issues doc.
