Elephant 2003

description written by member Zara:

The movie starts as a car has a hard time driving straight down the road in a residential area. We think some kid has stolen this car. Nah. It's the dad driving his son to school, and he's drunk. The teenage son must take over. So, adults give up all responsibility towards their children and mayhem can take place. The film shows one day in the life of several teenage students as they go in and out of classes. They live their student lives and we follow their steps through the corridors and doors, taking them as guides one by one, like avatars in a giant video game.

Elephant Movie Review by Seth (1/31/2007)

This movie sucked. It was recommended to me by a film student. (Word to the wise, don't watch movies recommended by film students.) In this waste of time, Gus Van Sant attempts to take us into the world of a normal high school day and a Columbine-type massacre. Like Gus Van Sant knows anything about a typical high school...

Elephant Movie Review by Jen (6/26/2006)

This is proof that just because something wins the fancypants palm d'or, doesn't make it a great movie.

It's customary when writing a review, to post a brief summary of the plot, which I would love to do for you. If there was a plot. Basically there are some kids who we never really get to know and they're doing some...

Elephant Movie Review by Justin (6/12/2006)

Centered on a "Columbine"-like high school massacre, director Gus Van Sant captures the rhythms of high school life quite well, especially the persistent buzz of noise that echoes in the hallways. Praise...

Elephant Movie Review by Seth C (1/31/2006)

Director Gus Van Sant, most popular for "Good Will Hunting," is a director I don't hold too high up in the filmmaking business. With much more smart, original and better directors like Tarantino, David Gordon Green and M. Night Shyamalan still toning their craft, there's really no reason to get excited over a man such as...
