One of the most difficult films I've ever watched, not by what they show but what they DON"T show. I like the fact that it's told out of sequence in effect, though it doesn't appear to be at first. The acting is superb all around, really hard to find fault with anyone. This definitely gets under the skin and stays there.
This is the most disturbing movie I have ever seen... It' a brilliant movie based closely on actual events.. A story that needed to be told. The acting, including the many amateurs, is excellent. Did I say this is the most disturbing movie I've ever seen?
A harrowing experience that pummels the audience within an inch of its life, and then resuscitates it for more. Visually gorgeous; the atmosphere is cold, the music pulses like a jackhammer, and the performances are as raw and powerful as I've ever seen. A nearly incomprehensibly powerful look at murder, shame, and role models.
Nihilistic to its vary bone.A haunting and disturbing display of a reality where there is no such thing as humanity.A world where things such as morals,ethics,joy or even something as simple as love are skewed,bastardized or absent altogether.It's so good at what it does that i probably will never watch this film again in my life.
I don't like how many modern indies use a lazy, directionless "naturalism" instead of a strong defining style. Handheld cameras attempt a kind of "immediacy," and they largely fail, but its worse that they take the place of precise and purposeful direction. In the end, Snowtown sacrifices pointed narrative, emotional or psychological intrigue with a vague and only occasionally-successful ambiance.
Kurzel's film looks rough at the first sight. But looking closer one can see how carefully structured his shots are, how he arranges interiors or perspectives and how he focuses his actors or defocuses them by showing only parts of their bodies. Using this visual vocabulary to underline the development of the story and the inescapability of the situation shows great craftmanship.
