So I have no idea how Snowpiercer flew under my movie radar exactly, except for the fact that maybe I’ve been consumed with college and other items of intrigue. Just from reading the premise, this film sounds quite unique and is causing lots of questions to pop into my brain about it. If that isn’t enough, all the reviews coming out using words such as “rich” and “magical” and “spectacular” and “audacious” and “ambitious” and “ludicrous ” (I know 😉 ) and “best” to describe it have raised my interest more so. Snowpiercer isn’t having a big theater showing, but, if you so please, you can watch it on demand (the newer method of movie distribution). Watch out though! I’ve also seen reviews using warning words like “gory”. Snowpiercer was censored in Malaysia.
