Reviews: White Bird in a Blizzard (2014)

white_bird_in_a_blizzardReviews for this film from our members:

  • Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: Araki pulls off a rather remarkable bait-and-switch here, indicative of a filmmaking sophistication that continues to impress (particularly after sitting through the ugly, screeching likes of The Doom Generation). And Woodley reminds us that she’s not just the hippie queen of YA adaptations, but a bracing actress who’s not averse to taking some gutty risks.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: lurid camp
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
    • Excerpt: ‘White Bird In A Blizzard’ Is A Mystery That No One Is Trying To Solve
  • Travis Hopson @ Examiner
    • Excerpt: White Bird in a Blizzard lacks momentum as a tawdry mystery, but it’s worth seeing for Woodley, Green, and Araki’s intoxicating sense of mood.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: If 2005’s “Mysterious Skin” was his most grown-up film and 2011’s offbeat, defiantly rudderless oddity “Kaboom” had him boomaranging back to old times, then “White Bird in a Blizzard” might be Araki’s most accessible—this is relative—and yet it’s still transgressive and quite haunting.
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • [New – 3/6/15] | Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: Too slow-moving for a thriller, but shocking ending is almost worth waiting for.
