A day in the lives of a group of average teenage high school students. The film follows every character and shows their daily routines. However two of the students plan to do something that the student body won't forget. Written by
Elephant is based on the Columbine massacre and follows two high school boys in the events leading up to the shooting. Alex and Eric are picked on by bullies; the usual jocks and other popular students, a common enough occurrence everywhere.
Later at home, the two use the internet and order a rifle. They are shown kissing in a shower as a homosexual relationship is implied.
They go to the high school dressed in black, with the weapons under their coats. They warn one kid to go away as some heavy s*** is about to go down. The propane bombs they have planted do not go off, so they randomly shoot anyone unfortunate to be in their line of fire. Teachers try to evacuate the building and the two gunmen separate. After more killing, they meet back at the cafeteria and the film has an abrupt ending without any resolution.
Gus Van Zandt's direction uses mostly hand held cameras with frequent long shots of the school hallways. I was exhausted and dizzy by the time Elephant finished. I am not impressed with the finished product.
