A day in the lives of a group of average teenage high school students. The film follows every character and shows their daily routines. However two of the students plan to do something that the student body won't forget. Written by Anonymous (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)
Having been a fan of Gus Van Sant for his avant-garde approach to making films it was a must that I eventually see the film ELEPHANT. Upon refreshing myself with the dated trailer I view this film. I enjoyed the breaking down of each character’s day and how in the day-to-day life of a High School a student lots of time is spent making it from class to class or avoiding class all together. Again I enjoyed the visual approach taken by Van Sant and the slow methodical pace he used in unraveling the story. So for ELEPHANT I give it 4 stars.
