This is an odd film conceptually. With the Columbine High shootings so clearly its point of reference its faux cinema verite style appears to be at once a disturbing insight into the background to the event and a Blair Witch Project style fictionalisation of it. Fact and fantasy seem to be present in equal parts. Of course the film will be compared to Gus Van Sant's more sophisticated but abstracted take on Columbine High, Elephant (2003). For me this film had more emotional kick but not necessarily for the right reasons. BH
