  • dionysus67's rating of the film Plato's Academy

    There is nothing particularly annoying in this film but nothing really exciting either. The portrayal of xenophobic and bigoted riff raff in Greece raises all sorts of issues about identity and bears all the irony of the title. Opting for a Jarmoushesque approach proves eventually a huge error as the weight of nothingness cannot be lifted either by the actors or by the script. Good intentions, but with minor rewards.
