First Snow

A directorial debut that began with ambitions of creating something as stylish as Memento. So he gets the actor - and, predictably, the similarity ends there. Guy Pearce is this ruthless salesman, who runs into a fortune teller who predicts imminent death. And then the waiting begins, paranoia builds and the ruthless salesman is left to tremble expecting the end. Its the script that ultimately fails, as there is very little Pearce's intensity and fine camera work can achieve on its own.
