Would You Watch “Snow On Tha Bluff?”

Would You Watch "Snow On Tha Bluff?"

Below is the trailer for the new film Snow On Tha Bluff by director Damon Russell , which was in competition at this year’s Slamdance Film Festival, and was also screened this month at the Atlanta Film Festival.

Some call it a narrative drama; others, a documentary; though it’s obviously one of those fake documentaries in the mold of the Paranormal Activity franchise of films, or The Last Exorcism.

According to the film’s website, the film is about “Atlanta robbery boy and crack dealer, Curtis Snow, who steals a camera from some college kids, in a dope deal, and begins documenting his life. At first, it’s business as usual for Curt. He robs dope boys, he runs from the cops, and he sells drugs, all while trying to provide for his baby momma and 2-year-old son. But when one of the drug dealers he ripped off comes back for revenge, things in Curt’s life spirals out of control.”

I think you’ve pretty much got the idea of what the film is going to be like by now, I’m sure.

Now I’m willing to take a look at anything, but I’m not so sure about this one.

How about you? Are you intrigued, or instead want to avoid this like the plague?

Now this is what you call INDEPENDENT FILMMAKING! I loved this movie! I saw it in New York at a huge film festival , it was an emotional experience! The trailer doesn’t do this movie justice… Once you start watching it, you literally get sucked in, riding shotgun through Curtis Snow’s world. I was really moved, because I understand the message and the hardships of real GHETTO life. It’s a must see, important film of our time.

This movie is dope!


I saw this movie, what I found interesting about it, is that it actually is a gangster movie that portrays the gangsta life correctly. It’s very realistic in it’s approach, it brought many memories from my childhood, (crenshaw 74-92) back to the forefront. Along with this realism, Curtis Snow is not a one-dimensional nigga, the brother is as complicated and conflicted more then any other movie about crime I’ve seen. Before I saw it, I was skeptical, but after seeing it, I can say, it’s authentic, if you ever lived this life, or had any connection to it, you will definitely relate.

Blah Blah

Yeah, it’s the same tired premise we’ve seen hundreds of times over but I got to admit, the first person, handy cam angle, is pretty original. Might be worth checking out.


Ghetto Cloverfield? Hmm.


I mean, what could it hurt. We’ve seen ghetto crime films so many different ways. Why not this?
