Did You Know?

Trivia:
In one of the early scenes in Rob's dorm room, a poster on the wall near the door says "DO YOU FEEL - new album." This poster is for an album by the popular alternative one-man music project headed by pop-rocker Bryce Avary known as The Rocket Summer. "Do You Feel" was The Rocket Summer's third full-length album and was released in 2007.See more »
Quotes:
Mr. Burke:[after seeing the memorial video Robert made] Is that serious, Robert?
Robert:What do you mean?
Mr. Burke:Is there something wrong with you, Robert? I'm no editor but I can safely say that's probably the worst thing I've ever seen. You didn't even have music! I'm gonna tell Mr. Wiseman to have someone else reediting everything. You... I'm very disappointed.

A Boy and His Camera, 26 August 2013
Author: Red Queen from United States

Afterschool is an ingenious voyeur's study on voyeurism. Kids today devour video toxic waste unguided and with no way to digest the daily dose of random clips that are void of any meaning or purpose, but are still irresistibly taboo.

With its overstimulated emotional shut down and pathetic sentiment throughout, the film is confusing and has no cohesive story, all by design. The amateur documentary effects suck. And are also intentional.

Afterschool does make a statement. With multi-dimensional accuracy.

But as much as I admire its genius, I didn't like watching this movie. I would only recommend it to parenting intellectuals.
