Snow on tha Bluff Reviews
What's good about this movie is how real it feels with the handheld camera approach. Movies like Snow on Tha Bluff prove that there are still avenues for it. This movie shows the hood life like few are able to do. I don't know if these are truly real events or not, and it doesn't really matter because it is true regardless. Shit like this happens everyday in countless cities.
I liked this movie for the most part. It's a short movie about dope dealing and killing people, so it's not for everyone. This shows a side of life in America that most people rather just look the other way from. If you're into the hood setting for films, you can't go wrong with Snow on Tha Bluff. It's definitely worth a look.
There are some very raw scenes in the movie that may stir some audiences the wrong way, such as real shootings, naked prostitutes, actual drugs, and death. However, for anyone that can sift through the gruesome images, I would highly recommend you watch this movie. There is a message behind "Snow on tha Bluff" that could never before be perceived by those not involved with the lifestyle being portrayed.
The emotion that I felt when watching certain moments of this film was different from any other due to the seemingly authentic events. The emotion felt when you see the face and hear the cry of a real child crying for his mother is different than I've ever experienced when watching a film.
Even if certain scenes of this film were staged, it still does a good job at helping viewers to realize that something must be done to help put an end to violence in Atlanta, in America, and in the World.
