When John is going out from the school (first scene, the dog one) Alex and Eric are coming to the school with the bags of weapons, they all are walking in the concrete path. In the second scene (which is supposed to be the same) they all are on the grass section, but when the camera returns to John, magically he's on the concrete path again. See more »
A refreshing film that was so simple that all of the complicatedness of the motives was so simply explained, and it worked. Not to mention the cinematography and lengthy shots were amazing. Also, from a 52 year old man, I expected worse of high school student dialogue, but boy was I surprised. Being in high school myself, I completely was convinced of this being actual high school dialogue, perhaps because much of it was improvised. I just cannot describe my feelings after watching the movie, like when most finish great films. It was realistic and simple, yet went to levels of insanity.
p.s.--the sound design was absolutely fantastic
