White rage is the story of Lauri, and through him the story of other victims of both school bullying and a separate childhood trauma: victims full of white rage, which may lead to school shootings and other extreme acts of violence. The film is also about our society: a society without sufficient understanding or desire to address the emergence of school violence.

True story white rage killer tells how bully-revenge is decided
3 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a beautifully made biopic documentary made by a psychologist about about Finland's two first shocking school shooting in 2007 at Jokela High School.

We follow the 14 year old until he becomes a killer at 16. It's "Lauri" telling the story from start to finish, on how he as an quiet A-student was experiencing bullying getting worse and worse, and how he started planning his revenge after reading philosophy. He tells how he detaches himself when bullied, and that he started preparing with weapons, when he was attacked, after a long time not answering any of the violence for years.

Another older school shooter at Kauhajoki is focused upon. A bullied boy getting over it. After he took up volleyball, he learned team play, and he had a great time and became a part of a successful team, but the coach, who really saw him, told him that he shouldn't endure the bullying. for a long time, volleyball was his savior, and he stops thinking about revenge.

But the problem came back when he became the loner and the teacher's favorite student. He became alienated, and was succumbed to rumors about sexual harassment and for exams cheating. Though cleared for both, this stuck to him. And then he shot eleven at Kauhajoki.

Then the film really starts explaining the pattern.

The film explains black rage as being so angry that you are almost loose of control and white rage as rage being built op over years. White rage is calm and collected, and is not psychological excepted, the film states. These killers are calm, friendly and with control.

The film explains "stigma". Why changing schools doesn't help. Then the film really starts explaining the pattern.

We also goes abroad, to Germany, the states and the Utøya massacre in Norway, explaining that Breivik was sane, while shooting 69 kids at Utøya. They are all victims of childhood trauma and bullying.

The film definitely is well made. The cinematography is weirdly beautiful, and the history-teller is very calm.

White Rage is a film that really stays at you even after watching., I have never felt a film so explanatory about school shootings psychology. It's a documentary everybody would learn something from. See it!
