Ultimately, you'll probably be left feeling for everyone involved, even the shooter himself, with basic humanity and decency prevailing above all else.
The story based on a real 911 call in the suburbs of Atlanta will make your heart pound... [Full review in Spanish]
The dynamic between actors Tarra Riggs and Bo Mitchell is authentic and humanistic as writer/director Reed Van Dyk allows the scene to take form one heartbreaking second after another.
Quietly shocking. A formidable counterargument to the bombast from certain quarters about arming teachers in order to meet such violence with more violence.
The characters are complex and the acting superb.
Writer-director Reed Van Dyk gives both actors remarkably meaty if not flashy roles and avoids the temptation for long monologues, which would kill any narrative tension.
A truly devastating piece, given the recent mass murder in Parkland, Florida, but it unfolds with an almost eerie calm.
Though based on a true story, Dekalb Elementary struck me as somewhat flat.
A filmmaking lesson in knowing how to get the utmost dramatic power by keeping things simple.
There should be special Oscars for lead performances in short films, too, because Riggs especially is outstanding.
Even though the film is remarkably restrained in terms of content, its impact is staggering.
It's a harrowing character piece that examines the unlikely relationship between a calm-under-fire elementary school receptionist (Tarra Riggs) and a mentally-unstable man (Bo Mitchell)...
