The movie has a lovely paranoia about it that Pearce, as Memento and L.A. Confidential told us, is a master at conveying.

I was beguiled by both the eerie moods and the striking compositions, which incorporate large stretches of empty space.

The film has some of the bleak inevitability of Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man, but without the compelling characters and oddball twists.

A haunting neo-noir about a man told by a palmist that his karma is about to run over his dogma.

Guy Pearce continues his quirky, risk-taking ways with another very strong performance here.

Through it all, Pearce reminds us how good he can be in these obsessive parts.

Like a first snow, Mark Fergus's psychological thriller is unpredictable, but doesn't quite stick.

[Pearce maintains] our interest even as the film, in its final half hour, seems to take a few wrong turns on the highway.

First Snow keeps audiences guessing - not necessarily about how the film will end but what path things will take to get there.

First Snow starts out with a compelling premise but melts all too quickly.

First Snow echoes Pearce's signature film Memento just closely enough to suffer by comparison.

First Snow is essentially a short story with a metaphysical twist, but Pearce puts his fears more up front than any actor I can think of. He keeps you poked and prodded with anxiety.

First Snow is a very worthy first film, and one that lingers in the mind long after the final fade-out.

Covers very familiar indie territory, but debuting director Mark Fergus covers with style.

A pointed little thriller with metaphysical pretensions, First Snow is shrewd enough to approach basic philosophical questions in sneaky, offhand ways.

Is it written somewhere that every indie quasi-noir must include a dripping faucet, ceiling fans, shadows of slatted blinds, and a traveling shot of highway lines?

A moody psychological thriller about a salesman's paranoid attempts to circumvent his predicted demise, First Snow engages but underwhelms.
