Las Vegas Weekly

Snow Angels, especially in its overwrought second half, merely wallows in unearned sadness.

It's a movie that keeps its distance from the characters, so much that we can shudder at what we fear is to come but aren't really allowed to mourn the innocent trapped in this downward spiral.

Director David Gordon Green gives us glimpses into the lives of the characters populating his canvas but there's a feeling that he's only scratching the surfaces of stories that have deeper undercurrents.

Frequently perched between the poetic and the twee, Green has been bitten by the Whimsy Bug

There are about two or three different films fighting for control of the screen during David Gordon Green's powerful but flawed Snow Angels

I just don't know anyone that I could recommend this sober film to go see. Yes, Rockwell is impressive, but it's in a role I would rather forget.

It feels sort of like a poor man's version of American Beauty, stripped of all the good parts and devoted only to a low-budget wallowing in misery that will leave you shell-shocked and depressed on your way out of the theater.

Could they have made more of a slow, dull and boring film?

Despite some foreshadowing in the opening scene, the film's change of key in the second half feels like a betrayal.

The plot becomes disjointed in the second half and suffers from tone changes. Still, the performances are compelling enough to make Snow Angels worth seeing.

...in the end the movie feels like tragedy propped up as art with overworked art direction and misdirected male actors.

...the film's positive attributes were for me not quite enough to make up for the movie's unrelentingly grim tone.

For a film full of murder, jealousy and fatalism, Snow Angels feels curiously small and anecdotal, and its impact diminishes as it nears its terrible conclusion.

Enough with these meek, banal exercises, David Gordon Green. Hit me with the sledgehammer in your heart.

So do the final 15 minutes negate the power of all that's gone before? Unfortunately, yes. Unless, that is, you're in the mood to embrace awfulness. In which case, rock on.

There are no joyous moments to balance the heavy-handed dose of everyday reality some people are forced to endure.

The movie entertains, albeit not in a way that will induce you to tell all your friends.

Lacks distinctiveness that would lift it above middle-of-the-road domestic drama.

Green doesn't seem to be charting a recognizable world, only the contours of his own mind.
