I really can’t stand the Because-It-Looks-Cool School of Filmmaking, and Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders could be this year’s valedictorian. His obsession lies not with making sure his story makes sense or that his characters are interesting. His triumphant moments are when he gets to make a big show of how he dreadfully he overestimates his visual imagination. Lost in the expensive special effects and sloppy storytelling are the hints of a thoughtful subtext regarding the value of beauty in relation to a woman’s power. But for Sanders, these moments are nothing more than a way to briefly shade his antagonist before rushing back to his one-dimensional heroine and her dull journey through pretty environments.
