“Snow Angels”: The Cost of Order, the Beauty of Tragedy

Snow Angels

It’s not often that I walk away from a movie respecting every party involved more than I did walking in. I can’t pick out one thing about this movie that I wasn’t at least highly impressed with.

Snow Angels is the first David Gordon Green film I’ve seen and now I want to see the rest. He’s a filmmaker that doesn’t only understand the necessity of storytelling, but understands film technique to it’s core. I want to start with the story but to give away even a modicum of information would be to destroy the lushness of the characters and their lives in this film.
