Snow on Tha Bluff
The story of Atlanta robbery boy and crack dealer, Curtis Snow, who stole a camera from some college kids in a dope deal and made a documentary about his life.
I recently caught this movie on Netflix Watch Instantly and I really enjoyed it. Snow on Tha Bluff is the best found footage movie I've seen. The movie masquerades as being "real" and through clever marketing the lines between reality and film have been blurred.
Snow on Tha Bluff offers a unique take on the life of a criminal and despite the despicable nature of the protagonist, the film manages to hit many emotional beats. The lead is a bit of an Omar from the Wire knock-off, but, considering the subject matter and the films narrative, that is forgiven.
The presentation is ingenious and it's about time a "found footage" movie was grounded more in reality.
It's currently available on Netflix Watch Instantly.
