The Snakes of Sugar Mountain
20 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

7 of 10. It's hard to review this without spoiling it. Let's just say this is a film best watched knowing as little about it as possible. The title has multiple meanings within the story, thereby adding another element to enjoy.

There are some drawbacks. The beginning is weak and feels pieced together after the rest of the story is told, requiring narration early on to setup the story, but the narration doesn't help. There are also some annoyingly stupid actions that eventually make sense given the nature of the characters.

The film could be easily titled "Seriously Messed-up Folk", but that applies to a lot of films. Don't expect high action. It's drama and mystery made more interesting via the story and the quirky characters involved. Excellent performances by Joe Egender, Don Harvey, and Brendan McCarthy make it authentic and immersing. Yet the story could really use 5 more minutes for things like plot and character development.
