May 13, 2009
The movie has a lovely paranoia about it that Pearce, as Memento and L.A. Confidential told us, is a master at conveying.
December 4, 2007
A fresh, intelligent and thoroughly involving psychological thriller.
November 27, 2007
I was beguiled by both the eerie moods and the striking compositions, which incorporate large stretches of empty space.
June 30, 2007
A smart, tense modern film noir.
April 26, 2007
The film has some of the bleak inevitability of Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man, but without the compelling characters and oddball twists.
April 20, 2007
A haunting neo-noir about a man told by a palmist that his karma is about to run over his dogma.
April 23, 2009
Predictability hangs over Mark Fergus's skillful debut feature, but not enough to detract from the intensity of the mood, the rhythm, and the performances.
January 29, 2009
A first rate thriller, First Snow is about a man haunted by his past who revisits it in a bid to change his destiny. It's a terrific role for Guy Pearce, who ably carries the film on his shoulders
July 16, 2008
Thoughtful, bleak thriller about fate and fear.
February 27, 2008
The ideas behind First Snow are great, but the film is shockingly static and, pardon the pun, cold.
