interesting premise. I'll give it points for a ballsy approach, but its a cheap one. with not much else going for it- repeating itself over and over. These guys are passionate about what happened on 9/11, either they are exploiting it or they are taking a mumbling, shouting approach.
Haunting portrait of High School students on the day of a school shooting. Van Sant captures the routine lifestyle of a school day with intense long takes and incredibly patient pacing, which works in the films benefit.
McQueen shows some of his great chops. McGraw is beautiful but is completely wooden throughout. The subplot with Al Lettieri kidnapping the married couple takes a radical turn. I can see why feminist hated Peckinpah.
