Critic Reviews of "Snowtown"Chicago ReaderMarch 15, 2012
Your appreciation of this Australian horror movie will depend on whether you think its artistry justifies its unrelenting ugliness.Chicago Sun-TimesMarch 15, 2012
The film is a chilling study of an evil, dominant personality and his victims.New York PostMarch 02, 2012
Overlong and grim to the point where some scenes are virtually unwatchable...Salon.comMarch 01, 2012
An impressive but exceptionally disturbing feature debut from Australian director Justin Kurzel that pushes the new wave of Aussie crime films up a notch.New York TimesMarch 01, 2012
This distressing infiltration of a family of young boys by a charismatic psychopath rewards with a stylistic talent that feels entirely new.AV ClubMarch 01, 2012
What is it with first-time Australian filmmakers and ultraviolent true-crime movies about thuggish underclass families?ChaseWhale.comNovember 16, 2013
I did not know this film was based on a true story until the closing credits, which makes this story so much more terrifying. Director Justin Kurzel crafted a raw feel that will leave you slack-jawed.TheShiznit.co.ukSeptember 28, 2012
Unflinchingly nasty, graphic and gut-wrenchingly powerful, Snowtown is a film that dares you to look away, but compels you to keep watching. As portraits of serial killers go, this deserves to be hung on the wall next to Henry.Irish TimesMarch 19, 2012
The grimy social realism and gurgling torture scenes place director Justin Kurzel's startling debut midway between Animal Kingdom and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.Antagony & EcstasyMarch 12, 2012
It has no particular observations about the mind of psychopaths that is worth the incredibly nasty feeling you get from sitting through its incredibly grim two hours.East Bay ExpressMarch 12, 2012
Is it the Aussie Gummo, or a true-crime drama that takes itself way too seriously? Can it be both simultaneously?Television Without PityMarch 09, 2012
Observing the character's regular and repeated acts of cruelty becomes numbing after awhile.
