March 18, 2007
A fate-obsessive film that would nearly register as existential were it not so resolutely low-key.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 12, 2007
It's a film of great promise, but loses dramatic circulation the longer it spends time chasing its own tail.

April 20, 2007
...the interest dissipates pretty quickly and the movie becomes a dreary plod...

April 4, 2007
Pearce's usual intense dedication to being in the moment aside, there's not a lot of there there.

April 26, 2007

March 20, 2007
A moody psychological thriller about a salesman's paranoid attempts to circumvent his predicted demise, First Snow engages but underwhelms.
March 22, 2007
Fergus is blessed with a cast who can duck-and-weave with his shabby material.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
April 7, 2007
Like a first snow, Mark Fergus's psychological thriller is unpredictable, but doesn't quite stick.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/6
April 7, 2007
A lousy Twilight Zone premise stretched mercilessly to 121 minutes.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/5
April 6, 2007
Seeing where the road leads, audiences will be forgiven for asking their own existential question: 'Is that all there is?'
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 9, 2007
In terms of the five stages of grief, Jimmy spends most of the film in denial and anger--understandably so--but it grinds First Snow into dramatic inertia.

April 5, 2007
For a movie concerned with such heady topics as fate, destiny, and mounting paranoia, it seems curiously reluctant to stick with the mystical.
April 6, 2007
"First Snow" has the makings of a complex psychological thriller, but it gets lost in moody atmospherics and an incomplete script.
March 24, 2007
It's quite admirable of Guy Pearce to try and eschew a Hollywood career, [but] if he keeps making films like First Snow...
Full Review | Original Score: C-
March 29, 2007
torpid where it should be tense, dull where it should be sharp, and so caught up with its big themes that it forgets to give them a compelling stage on which to play out
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
March 23, 2007
Standard issue drama that trashes all attempts at credibility.
Full Review | Original Score: C
April 5, 2007
First Snow echoes Pearce's signature film Memento just closely enough to suffer by comparison.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
