Snowpiercer (2013) – Review

I can’t shake the nagging feeling that somewhere along the way, Terry Gilliam had something to do with this. I’ve checked and it doesn’t appear that he has, but still, it just feels like he has had some form of cinematic sway in its creation. Not only does the project look like the kind of dystopian nightmare that would lurk in the back of his cerebellum somewhere, but the tone, a voraciously ugly, pustulent and violent microcosm of society’s most unpleasant of possible futures, is presented here in an almost comedic fashion.
