On "Snowpiercer"


From The Dispatch:
In the end, it is humanity that will always be the agent of its own destruction, but what makes “Snowpiercer” so unique is its refreshingly non-whitewashed vision of the future. Bong understands that while the ground outside may be white, the future certainly isn’t. The barriers of race and class are destined to fall, even if human nature continues to try to force those divisions on itself. This is a rare kind of adventure, a smartly directed and thrilling film that never once panders to its audience. “Snowpiercer” has the power to restore faith in this kind of genre filmmaking. It’s a totally unique, delightfully weird romp that offers a spark of imagination that is sorely lacking in so many of our summer movies. For anyone tired of the same old, same old at the multiplex, this is a film well worth seeking out.
