SNOWFLAKE Blu-ray Review
Take a dash of Tarantino, a splash of Coen brothers, a metric ton of pretzel-logic self-awareness, and a fast-paced series of humorously violent misadventures, and you’re halfway to grasping the magnificent German madness of this bizarre import. Hunting down the murderer of their families in a near-future Berlin, a gang of lowlife characters all want revenge on each other, but along the way they must contend with a myriad of wicked fairytale types—assassins, madmen, a blood-covered angel, and an electric-powered superhero—all apparently come to life through a screenplay written by a demented but clueless dentist. Must be experienced to be believed, and guaranteed to twist your mind.

I give the Snowflake Blu-ray a B.
When Javid and Tan finds a script in a car they stole, their world is turned up side down when they realize the script is actually depicting the events that had happened earlier and at that moment of time.
Don’t let this film discourage your from watching it just because its in German. There are a few scenes that are in English. At the opening of the film it was a bit hard to follow the subtitles but once I got into it, there was no problem at all. This film has a Tarantino feel to it. It was as if there were two mini stories going on at one point but towards the end they were connected.
There are many things that I liked about this film. At first I didn’t like how there were two stories going on within the film but once I saw that they were connected it made for an interesting story. I like when Javid found the script in the backseat of the car and realizes that it (the script) depicted events that had occurred earlier in the day. The banter between the two childhood friends (Javid & Tan) were hilarious. This film takes place in a somewhat post-apocalyptic world where things appear to be the same as society as we know it today but a few things have changed. Believe it or not, there was a superhero (well vigilante) in this film. Electro Man had this vintage look to him. I liked how his outfit looked like he created it himself in his garage with a 1940s vibe to it.
