  • Zach Closs's rating of the film 2:37

    Van Sant's "Elephant," with which "2:37" was often negatively compared, I found to be a jumble of archetypes and tropes in arthouse trappings -- but here we have a more raw, nasty and honest film, with slimy characters winning our twisted sympathy and complex interrelationships between teachers, students, families and the system in the spotlight. Received a seventeen-minute standing ovation at Cannes for a reason.
