The Wolf of Snow Hollow It is one of the most concise and exciting American films of the year. From those crimes mixed with myth and of course with a touch of comedy. A film reminiscent of the style of the Coen brothers and David Fincher. Be with Zomji.
In myth, a werewolf is a person who has the ability to change the appearance of a wolf. Deformation occurs only on nights when the moon is full moon. In the legends of our country, there are also rumors about the relationship between the wolf and the full moon. In Persian poetry, the full moon is thought to be the wolf’s unattainable lover, and for this reason, on nights when the moon is full, the wolf reaches its maximum height to approach the moon, although it never reaches the moon. In literature and cinema, werewolves often fought between crime and love (animal temperament and human temperament). These mythical creatures also bear a strong resemblance to Dracula. Both creatures are nocturnal and both are interested in killing. Dracula has a more humane background: lonely and mysterious aristocrats who have lost everyone around them. Werewolves can be of any class. The question that has occupied the mind of the young police officer in The Wolf of Snow Hollow is whether he is facing a real or imaginary creature.
The film begins with aerial images of the environment. Mountain and snowy forest full of dark spots for demons to hide. The images merge and the music conveys a sense of dread. Snow Halo is a tourist area for urbanites. They come to the hotels of this city for skiing. The images lead to the full moon disk. It’s time for the werewolves to come out. The battle between man and animal is probably one of the first battles that man has faced. Early humans had to fight bears, wolves, and other wild creatures to protect themselves and their families. The closer the habitat is to nature and the further away from urbanization, the greater the possibility of this battle. The Wolf of Snow Hollow begins in such a situation. With a murder that connects the audience to crime movies and serial killers.

It is probably the fastest editing film I have seen this year. Hollywood movies have become more and more fast-paced. Their argument is even acceptable. Today’s audience does not think like the audience of the 70’s and the rhythm of his life has changed. A person who has learned to do several things at the same time, such as eating on the subway while eating breakfast and reading an article, is probably accustomed to seeing several events at the same time and analyzing them in a short time. Naturally, if you are interested in quieter films, you should look for them in European cinema. In Hollywood, the principle is: do not give the audience a chance to think. Everything must be at the end of its speed. An idea that has many opponents, but I think it is pointless to oppose this approach. Cinema is a very big world that everyone is connected to according to their interests. To be fair, Jim Cummings’ new film is one of those heartwarming high-speed ones.
The film is about the son of a retired sheriff. The old sheriff is no longer physically able to enforce the law. (No Country For Old Men “Remember the Coen brothers’ Tommy Lee Jones, as the old sheriff, has no ability to do anything and is always behind.” In the New World, New Rules Formed And a new mindset is needed to deal with the forces of evil today. The sheriff’s son is to replace him and solve the story of the horrific murders. An unknown and strange creature comes to the small town of Snow Halo and kills women. It is strange that in most movies, female serial killers are prey. A question that has occupied John Marshall’s mind as well. It is rumored that a strange creature that looks like a wolf is a killer. The young policeman, who does not believe in this myth and lives in the real and tangible world, does not believe in this hypothesis and intends to solve the murder mystery by finding the killer and introducing himself as the new sheriff and ending these mythical fantasies.

Excerpts from the film are revealed below
The movie cops are not as big as the sheriffs of Western movies. They are broken and powerless people. John Marshall as the main character of the film is an alcoholic and a failure in his marriage. He does not even have a good relationship with his ex-wife and spouse, and he experiences the same humiliation he sees in society from his ex-wife. John needs a victory to get rid of this filthy situation. The movie cops know the least. People know more about the mystery of murder through rumors. This is why they do not take the police too seriously. People also do not communicate well with the police and do not respect them. There is no stereotype of being afraid of the police and giving them information in this film. Gathering young policemen in a cafe and talking about the mystery of murder is like a student gathering to solve academic problems. They have no experience or knowledge of the issues. There are ordinary people who are excited and shocked by the killer’s movements before they are able to take matters into their own hands.

Probably the element that makes the film so exciting and heartwarming, and of course its winner, is comedy. In this violent and terrifying atmosphere where people are being torn to pieces one by one by an obscure creature, the confused and chaotic police of the film have come out of the water very funny. Let’s review his encounter with the second murder scene. He has clearly lost control of the scene and cannot even deal well with those around him, and in the meantime he realizes that the corpse has no head. The inability of the police to control the situation due to their disabilities and fears quickly turns into verbal violence against their colleagues. A job that does not benefit him much and makes him weak in management.
Probably any other crime film, for example if we were dealing with Fincher films, would depict the scene of the disappearance of the corpse very sadly, but the confused police of this film are wandering in the middle of the crime scene and the camera rotates around to capture more of this confusion. And mischievous music adds to the comedy of the scene. In general, we encounter absurd scenes. The police force is incapable of dealing with this complex case. Suggestions from John Marshall’s colleagues add to the comedy: In fact, the first suggestion of colleagues is to shrug off the issue. Another colleague, John, tells the story. “It’s a werewolf.” A subject that makes John very nervous. He believes that he should look for clues in the real world, and even when he has to look for information about wolves in the library, he gets nothing but nightmares.
The humiliation that the young policeman experiences puts pressure on him from all sides. Other officers make fun of him for his alcoholism. His ex-wife considers him a conscientious objector, and his daughter relates her problems to the events of her childhood in a sarcastic and, of course, hilarious scene, when her mother leaves her. All these humiliations increase the pressure on his life to force him to make a positive move once and for all and cover up all his failures by taking the killer. Of course, according to their own predictions and the pattern of crime movies, the clever killer will eventually go astray. One of the prey goes away and the police find evidence to find him. The scene of the conversation between the killer and one of the prey in the cafe is very similar to Fincher’s films, especially Zodiac It has a “zodiac”. Now the police have evidence before them: the killer is very tall and smells like a camera room, and what could be more hilarious: “We are looking for a tall man.” This!
Probably the element that makes the film so exciting and heartwarming, and of course its winner, is comedy. In this horrible and horrible atmosphere where people are torn to pieces one by one by an obscure creature, the confused and chaotic police of a very funny movie has come out of the water.
The path to finding the killer is all based on coincidence. No intelligence or punctuation on the part of the detective will reveal the murder. Even the film’s wandering police, like Robert Gary Smith in the zodiac, do not seek to decipher the murder story, and quickly rush to the alcohol when it fails and meet the killer at the unlocking scene out of luck. Luck has a serious effect on finding the killer. A killer with a not-so-significant component is almost unrecognizable. she is tall. He does not even imagine his height. One witness says she is a woman. All this incomplete information further misleads the police, and in the final scene, he reveals himself to the audience by wearing a wolf costume, and is eventually hunted. A scene that may not have been as calculated and precise as the rest of the film.
All in all, The Wolf of Snow Hollow is one of the most interesting films of this year. The role of Jim Cummings and Robert Foster (who died after the film and the film was dedicated to him) is calculated and influential. Cummings’ sudden outbursts set him apart from similar cops, capturing a memorable image in his mind, which ultimately gave the film a compelling speed. The police can finally end their failures by chance and reveal the secret of the legend of the nights when the moon is full. Although he will not get the position of sheriff in the final season, he can overcome his personality weaknesses and become a perfect person. The same pattern is often repeated in Hollywood movies and is still pleasing.
