un effort s'attaquant sans gêne aux véritables raisons pouvant motiver des actes aussi insensés qui mérite d'être écouté attentivement.

While Elephant was a success stylistically, Ben Coccio's Zero Day is more haunting and hits home harder.

probably the most realistic look at how far teen angst can really go, along with the reasons why it exists in the first place

My reaction to Zero Day closely mirrored my reaction to Gus Van Sant's Elephant. Neither film tries to exploit tragedy, but I'm not sure either succeeds in telling us much we don't already know.

Writer-director Ben Coccio has made an intensely immediate, meticulously detailed bone-chiller -- it haunts you long after you've wished it would go away.

Zero Day simply proves that feel-bad films are no more instructive than feel-good films.

It generates strong visceral impact while conveying the essentially inexplicable nature of such tragedies.

Mr. Coccio's conclusions -- or lack thereof -- may seem a little pat at times, but as a pseudo-case study of adolescent ego and aimless nihilism channeled into a fit of violence, it's like a bucket of ice water in the face.

Gripping, compelling work. It feels pulled from real life, and real life is the most frightening thing there is.

The film seems to lose its way about midway through.

The 'found' tapes produce a lurid, 'Blair Witch'-like intimacy, though the depiction of the shooting itself ... crosses over into exploitation.
