Willis Earl Beal,
I suppose the makers of this film thought they were being "artistic" or "deep". Or perhaps they thought they were being clever. I really don't know. But I do know they failed miserably.
There's no message or meaning to this film; characters whom we are never introduced to give no meaningful dialogue or express any emotion. It's just a series of random people doing boring things for an hour and a half. That's literally it. I have no other summary for the last 90 minutes I just wasted and can never get back.
If you want a truly magnificent film on the subject of mass shootings, see Gus Van Sant's Elephant. Otherwise, stay away from this one. I mean it.
