It seems like not showing how you feel, or being able to paper over something so completely is a kind of mark of honor. A way in which you can be tested against the others - the ones who are being shoved into information streams like people drinking from a high pressure fire hydrant.

you can tell a white man made this. only a white person could imagine non-white youth killing their friends without conscious or reason. this movie has no dimension in the characters or nuance. didnt even make until the end.

It's about some kids who are light on morals and only begin to regret their actions after they've taken things too far. And then it ends without much point. It's not a particularly interesting story, so the flat ending is annoying. So why did I spend 82 minutes on a dull trip to nowhere?
