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

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.

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.

Interestingly enough, it is in letting us get to know the assailants, not the victims, that Coccio makes us grieve.

Can't help but resonate with a ripped- from-the- headlines topicality.

October 12, 2003
A shamelessly exploitive, subtly pretentious mockumentary, which manages to be the funniest film about a high school gun tragedy since Bowling for Columbine.
