For every talented young director, there are a thousand nuts with a cheap camera who think they are the next artiste. Such is the case with A Coat of Snow -- which, by the way, should have been plowed to the side of the road like A Glob of Slush. I don't care who this guy's brother is, this film is awful -- I mean, even Jimmy Carter had a brother.
Two minutes into the film I thought I was watching a high school film project, but then I realized that I was wrong, this wasn't even high school level, or if it were, it would have gotten a D minus.
It's not only that the film is amateurish, it's that the whole concept for the film is dull, uninspired and uninteresting. I thought I was being a good citizen by broadening my horizons and venturing out to Silver Lake to see this but I've learned my lesson.
There's a reason why big studios make big movies and a lot of people go to see them. There is also a reason why people like The Coen Brothers can take a hand held camera and make a masterpiece -- neither scenario applies where this film and it's director are concerned. I get so annoyed by this new trend in Hollywood and I feel compelled to lash out against endless feet of film and video that should go straight into the shredder.
I would tell you to save your money but this film won't be shown anywhere so there's no danger of that. The danger however is that this trend will continue until eventually EVERYBODY will have a movie on YouTube and there will be no more Fargos or Citizen Kanes. Sounds like a stretch I know, but I see bad things ahead.
