      It's not meant to have meaning. Its just a story of everyday school life, relationships, and then... how everything can turn in an instant.

        i only saw the last 10 min where he shot his friend, I was hoping it would be good, but sounds kinda sucky now.

          Oh my god, are you guys serious, you don't know what it was about??

          This film won awards at Canne etc. It's not a potrayal of 'everyday school life and relationships' as one of you said.

          It's a take on the Columbine shootings. A 'fly on the wall' style film which just tells the events of that day. Isn't that obvious??
          It even says on the DVD case that it's based on it.

          It's a really good movie IMO by the way - it's not supposed to be flashy or anything, it's supposed to be close to reality.

              It is. Gus Van Sant has made it clear MANY times that this isnt a re-creation of the Columbine Massacre. It's inspired by the shootings, but its a different movie. He wanted to make a reality based movie where you follow the people in this particular school around and get to know thier personalities and relationships. By doing so you begin to relate to the characters, and so when the sickening crash of the killing hits, its far more emotional (like the actual event).

                  that's weird. i didn't feel at all emotional when it happened. i didn't feel sorry for most of the ones who got shot. i figure they just went crazy, and killed everyone.

                    it's like that movie didn't have a script (hence reality based). like 10 camras followed 10 kids to get a perspective and their tangent interaction with each other...
