A very effective and accurate ensemble piece.
It’s hard to be an ensemble drama in a time when the other films in this sub-genre have a very sturdy track record, with “Crash” being a Best Picture winner, “Babel” and “Traffic” being Best Picture nominees, and “Magnolia” being a cult favorite, among many other popular multi-storied films. Yes, these ensemble pieces all are quite distinctive from one another, but it’s very hard to not compare them to each other, as their common goal is the same: to tell many stories and convey one focused message.

In my opinion, films like “Crash” and “Babel” are hurt by the fact that they are forced to cheat the viewers in order to come to the film’s end message, whereas a film like “Magnolia” or “Traffic” arrives at it through brilliant film-making and storytelling.

Luckily, this adaptation ensemble piece manages to land itself far closer to the likes of “Magnolia” or “Traffic” than “Crash” or “Babel.” While I consider that a very good thing, some may not. Some may want a film that focuses on leaving a strong emotional impact more than telling its many stories as well as possible, and they may in fact be disappointed by “Winged Creatures.” But if you appreciate low-key films that are effective without hitting you over the head in any way, this film is definitely a must-see.

One of the first things praise-worthy in this ensemble film is, of course, its terrific ensemble cast. Many of these actors provide performances that prove they have more potential than I had previously thought. The film is about numerous characters who witness a murder, and the PTSD that follows them around afterward, and most of the actors have to portray a different PTSD side-effect with his or her performance, and all of them do it very well.

I never believed that Kate Beckinsale had anything to her name besides hot looks, but she plays a stressed-out mother very convincingly. After his ridiculous over-performance in “Vantage Point,” I thought that Forrest Whitaker’s fabulous performance in “The Last King of Scotland” may have just been a fluke. But his portrayal of a man whose luck is all over the place after the event is spot-on. As Dakota Fanning moves towards adulthood, she handles a particularly tricky (and religion-heavy) performance with ease. Heck, even Jennifer Hudson (how the hell did she win an Oscar?) gives a performance that indicates some talent, even though her role is small.

Then you get to the direction, and all that goes with it. The film moves between its stories just as well as the higher-budget, more mainstream ensemble pieces, transitioning very well without ever killing the mood with a sudden shift. The film’s score adds to this , as it keeps the same feel throughout the movie, giving the film an unchanging pace and mood, so even though you’re watching a bunch of stories at once, it’s one wholesome experience.

I don’t know if this will get recognition come Oscar time, but frankly, it doesn’t need to. This is a movie that shows talent out of a lot of actors about whom you may have been skeptical, and is a very worthy addition to the ensemble piece genre.

A serious film on trauma
Although there are many films on serious subjects the techniques used are many and various. Here we have a script which places a group of people in a diner in peril of a gunman. By restricting our field of vision the film allows us to either imagine all that happened on trust, or allow our instinct to take us where the story teller wants us to go. There are many deft cinematic touches along the way coaxing us to understand how the many ‘victims’ of the opening crime scene, which is slowly revealed as the film progresses, cope with the trauma of closeness to death.

How we understand the trauma and the coping of the victims is left very much to each watching individual and for that I salute the production team. We are not encouraged to feel sympathy or empathy or pity or any other emotion. The film is as cold as the blood in the opening murder scene. And yet strangely this is not a hard film to watch perhaps because of the constant cutting between the various people involved. Yes there are moments when we may feel a little awkward but they seem accidental rather than deliberate.

The acting is excellent throughout. I would like to have given this film a high score because the actors deserve it, but it always falls short of the pivotal axiom that humans are unpredictable even when being predictable. At least it takes its subject seriously and for that it is to be admired.

And so I award it six out of ten.
