Overlooked
19 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't figure out why this movie is still so obscure. No one I've ever asked has seen it, even in Austin, which is really strange considering that it's based on the Charles Whitman sniper shootings at UT. I saw it over four years ago, and still remember it strongly for it's dreamy surreal quality. The protagonist drifts through the day, encountering various campus characters with equal nonchalance. Even when he realizes that someone is putting holes in his soda with a high powered rifle he seems unfazed. It's definitely a very unique take on what was at the time (60's) one of the most violent and shocking episodes to occur at an American school. (The film actually takes place in the time which it was filmed, not the 60's).
