(mx) wrote: "Snow Angels" is a sad and deeply affecting drama whose impact stays with you for a long time after the film is over. The mood it creates and varying range of emotions it stirs up are difficult to shake off afterwards, and that is all credited to the writer and director David Gordon Green. His slice of life drama is filled with rich characters and honest dialogue, and the performances are equal to the tremendous script. Both Green and his actors leave you in turmoil here, sometimes evoking sadness and horror both in the same moment. Witness the emotionally draining scene at the end, the film's final tragedy involving Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale. It's sad, scary and haunting all at the same time. Hearing Beckinsale utter her final word may be the saddest thing I've seen in a film in a long, long time.Green has a way of moving an audience that few other filmmakers have mastered, as in the simple scene in which Rockwell removes a picture off the wall revealing a handprint he left there as a child. It's so fundamental but powerful thinking about the character's innocent childhood transformed into such a turbulent grown-up life.Rockwell and Beckinsale give strong performances. And in the middle of it all are the remarkable Olivie Thirlby and Michael Angarano, two teenagers whose budding relationship is funny and touching but also represents hope for the future amid all of the despair on display."Snow Angels" is a tough movie to watch, but ultimately the experience is rewarding due to the fine writing and exceptional acting. Many have accused the film of being depressing, and while it is profoundly sad but so is life sometimes. This is a powerful reflection of that.
(fr) wrote: A friend of a friend described this as "a modern indie masterpiece." With some reservations I have to agree.It has all the markers of solid indie filmmaking, all the while finding a unique voice to differentiate itself.The plot includes a shy lead, family issues, depression, and teenaged angst from all the characters, regardless of age. However, the markers of a solid indie don't lie in the plot, but in how it's handled.Thumbsucker typical of what you'd expect from an "indie masterpiece" is off kilter and eccentric; and at times very much aware of itself. Some aspects, including a new age orthopedist channeled by who else but Keanu Reeves, hit that bittersweet spot that define the term indie; sad tinged funny, genuine in emotion but ironic on a stylistic level. The movie flexes with solid indie muscle, with all the oxymoronic inclinations of the phrase.What sets it apart from the pack then, besides its skill is the peculiar way the movie regards the characters regarding themselves and each other. Thumbsucker has a level of lightness to it that almost feels like detachment sometimes. Justin calls his parents by their first names, and it feels like the movie carries that same level of detached affection. It's not a flaw or a strength, just an observation.I said Thumbsucker's unique but now that I'm thinking about it it's pretty much Little Miss Sunshine, American Beauty, and Rocket Science blended together with the volume turned down a little bit. About Justin's thumb sucking hinted at in the title; it's both more and less important to the characters and the movie itself than you think. Keanu Reeves' ultimate suggestion; shrink your definition of normal enough and everyone's pretty strange.

(us) wrote: Slow swashbuckler about Redbeard, but under the direction of Fritz Lang, the film manages to have enough interesting visual touches and gothic atmosphere to make it worth watching. Stewart Granger is the lead pirate, on the run from the law and in search of a legendary diamond. It's all pretty forgettable and not terribly compelling, but if you're a Lang fan, it's worth checking out. George Sanders, Alan Napier and Jack Elam also appear in the film and Mikls Rzsa provides a good score.

For awhile, he believes the head of the show, "Doc Carter" (Earl Hodgins), is the head of the operation. His belief is backed up with the fact that "Carter" spent the last decade in jail. Now, he has to go after the real criminals into Mexico and bring them to justice. I have seen some John Wayne movies via Hulu in the last couple of weeks, and this is easily one of the better ones the site currently has. The acting in this movie is very decent, and pretty believable all around. Not one performance was weak in fact. You had good chemistry between the main players, and none of them looked as if they were just there to get paid. Wayne stands out as the leading man in this film. His presence is one of the strongest in the film. This was his last movie for Monogram Pictures, and it's a very good send-off for "The Duke." As for other performers, they all did pretty good performances for the amount of screen time they had. Some of the supporting cast were poorly written in this movie. There are two members of the traveling medicine show who basically were there to perform a couple of songs, and deliver a few lines. They were there mostly for show, and not much else. There is quite a few action scenes in this movie, but nothing too spectacular. You get one horse chase, and some gunfighting, but nothing memorable. One thing that limits this movie is the length of it. This makes some subplots rushed. There is a taste of a romance between Wayne and Marion Burns, who plays "Carter's" daughter and performer in the medicine show. It didn't have time to blossom because the main plot had to be advanced. When the story moves over the border into Mexico, I felt the characters introduced at that point were not used well. They added little, if anything, to the plot. One big problem was the audio. Due to the movie being 75 years old, the audio just didn't hold up. The audio makes it hard to understand what is being said at times. At some points, the people were pretty muffled for a few seconds. You could understand what was being said, but you had to strain to hear what they were saying. I would say that this could be something to watch if you can catch it online on sites like Hulu, or on television. Only rent the movie if you are a diehard John Wayne fan.
