Making art out of the elephant in the room which nobody notices..
Not good. The emotionless "empty" narrative has been done many times before (from the relatively recent "Rosetta", up to Antonioni's "The Red Desert" from 1964), and while dull may be a point of aesthetics here (i.e. a film without any filmic ornaments), it still is dull. Worst of all has to be the various unrealistic and exaggerated bits, like the video game FPS, or the buying guns online and getting them delivered via mail scene (??!!). In the end this is a bad film that tells us that in a society which bullies, and which also allows gun possession, the victims of the bullying might react by shooting people regardless of whether they are responsible or not (in other words, by wanting to dispose of the race in general, rather than just the culprits). It is hardly a meaningful message, and the film is still bad.
