Roger Ebert said about this film, "I think its responsibility comes precisely in its refusal to provide a point." Those words helped me cope during the credits, while I cursed the screen. Gus Van Sant's palme d'or winner 'Elephant' is about one day at a High School. Following several characters as they go about their day. It ends as ambiguously as it started. Yet, its narrative is as polarizing and relevant as ever. Its an American tragedy displayed unfiltered. I find it hard to love anything about this film. Though, I do appreciate the choices the director made. How the day unfolds, how the sky looks, the look in John's eyes when he knew... All things I'm going to carry with me. This is great and utterly important filmmaking.
