Films in 50 words-ish: Elephant

Buy it!Gus VS shoots clichés from life and Hollywood; parents don’t understand; bulimic prom queens; nerds; and, with comedy, Benny-the-hero who calmly approaches the bad guy – twist – he gets shot (ha, ha!). Yet Elephant holds the attention and captures the boredom of school and the desire to shoot the whole thing down.

Don’t know why, but 6.5 out of 10.

Mystic River……21 Grams

If you found my comments useful, let Amazon know by clicking Elephant [2003] and hitting the ‘yes’ button underneath their copy of this review. You may buy while you’re there.
