In the scene where Matt is driving at the gun range, he looks at the camera and imitates the exact same hand gesture Dylan Klebold (One of the two gunmen in the columbine school shooting of 1999) was videotaped doing while driving to school. See more »

Two high school outsiders make a film project that quickly turns too real.
4 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Dirties has been garnering rave reviews and collecting awards at multiple film festivals and for good reason. It's a powerful, engaging and important film. Two high school best friends, Matt and Owen, decide to make a movie project for class where they pretend to murder the group of boys who routinely harass them. Matt is played by Matthew Johnson who also wrote and directed the film. It was filmed at a real high school with actual students so the line between reality and fiction is significantly blurred. Matt is an outsider but one that viewers can relate to, with his quips and love for movies. This makes it all the more disturbing when he begins to take the murder plot too seriously and takes action that will change his life, as well as the lives of all those around him, forever. This movie is not just about a school shooting. It's about consequences, it's about friendship, it's about loneliness. It's definitely a must see.
