Almost Like An Unintentional Comedy
White Bird in a Blizzard is set in the 1988, and tells the story of Kat Conner, played by Shailene Woodley, a 17 year old girl who seems to live a normal life until her perfect, homemaker mother, Eve, played by Eva Green, disappears one day. Having lived in a dysfunctional relationship with her mother, she feels little pain or sadness towards her mother’s absence. She doesn’t even blame her father, Brock, played by Chris Meloni, as he is too much of a wimp to have anything to do with her disappearance. As a few years go by, and Kat goes to College, she begins to realize just how much her mother’s disappearance really impacted her, as she finds herself investigating and discovering the truth about what really happened.
White Bird in a Blizzard is based on a novel by Laura Kasischke and adapted by director Gregg Araki. Simply put, it is a somewhat bizarre, silly, sex romp, featuring a great lead performance by Shailene Woodley. This film fits director Gregg Araki’s usual teenage sex and violence overtones, and features some pretentious and overbearing dialogue that almost comes off as an unintentional comedy. There are also some interesting things in this film, directing-wise: an unusual opening with a shot of Eve, the mother, on her back and a recurring dream sequence throughout involves Kat seeing her mother naked in the snow (hence the title). This is actually supposed to be a symbol for the film and a clue to the audience about the truth of the mystery. Additionally, the film’s use of flashbacks is both bizarre and fascinating at the same time, making the relationship between mother and daughter all the more dysfunctional and creepy.
In the lead role, Shailene Woodley demonstrates her talents portraying a teenager who really doesn’t know who to trust. The flashback where her mother comes into the room and tries to psychically assault her features some very fine acting by Woodley. In comparison, Eva Green appears more “over the top’ and gives a notably “hammy” performance, portraying a clearly disturbed woman. In one of the scenes, for example, when she tries to act younger than her age and then breakdowns, it is mildly disturbing and gloriously cheesy all at the same time. The other actors in the film are good, especially Chris Meloni as the father who has a secret to hide, and Angela Bassett as a psychiatrist.
Overall I thought this was interesting film, but I don’t know what to really make of it.
Greg Araki: no more!!
When a 15 years old teen, fan of John Waters and David Lynch is given way to much money and power to make his first film, that gives WHITE BIRD IN THE BLIZZARD. … what a pompous title!! … EXCEPT that Greg Araki is no longer a teen and it’s not his first film even if that directing is spoiled with amateurism!! Every section of the film- making is crap here!! The shot are static and for no reason, the editing is lame (Yeah we get that!! Next shot!! … too late.), the make up is dreadful: either it’s Shaleen Woodley teen character who wakes up with the thickest make up on, either it’s all female character who looks like whores!! Why? Does the director suggest that all women are prostitutes? Or maybe he doesn’t know that all the decision he makes should means something for the film? Why putting this ridiculous wig on the father’s head? I’ll tell you why, the director thought it was funny. Yeah, the director mocks his actors, so the character, so he acts against the film!! And sometimes it’s just lame directing: In one dream the teen see her mom with no hands she says EXCEPT THAT WE DO SEE THE PHALANX UNDER THE SLEEVES before the close up where the hands had been digitally removed!!!! And beyond the dreadful directing there is the dreadful directing!! Which is unable to create any kind of attachment with the main character. I talk to a girl who loved the film. I ask her to give one, only one adjective on the main character she just spent 1h30 with… she couldn’t. I don’t blame the actress (i went for her) but her character is just not written!! And taking Eva Green to play Woodley’s mom when they are 11 years apart? Hey, don-t worry, just trust the make up team who transform any girl into a whore!!!! Even the set department put so much in the “hey did you notice that we are in the 80’s???!!” And vulgar!! Because everything is vulgar in this film, the set, the clothing (poor Sidibe) the make up of course, the way Woodley has to say “fuck” every 2 words to tell the audience that she is a teen, everything is vulgar in this film!! And on the top of everything, i read that Woodley was very uncomfortable for the sex scene. So the director was also unable to create a safe or fun environment for his actors!! Maybe it’s because he mocks them on screen and that he does what ever he wants alone with no regards for the film or his co-workers!! To conclude i’ll just say: Greg Araki: No more!!!!
