I'm going to start this review off by saying that the first time I watched this was when I was 15. Me and a friend were having a sleepover, and we stayed up all night watching IFC when it came on. We had no idea what to expect, only that it was set in a high school (so we could relate) and it had a hot blonde boy in it. Needless to say this film is what made me interested in film study, and media ... read more

A bit of a let-down

Having watched this film I have to say that I'm disapointed with it. I liked the fact that unknown actors and actresses were used and that they actually used their first names in the film, but the acting (IMHO) didn't seem very realistic at all, but maybe thats because I'm not an American. I didn't really like the camera work, especially the gliding after a character walking down a corridor, that ... read more

A great movie

Ever since I have heard about this flick, I became really eager to check it out. Indeed, Gus van Sant is a very good director and I always had a weak spot for his work but, to be honest, not all his movies have been completely successful (As a matter of fact, ‘Good Will Hunting’, his biggest success at the box-office, is actually rather overrated in my opinion). Fortunately, this movie really... read more
View all Elephant reviews
"Elephant" is a film about a normal day in high school that ends in a Columbine-esque massacre. We become observers of the events that happen throughout the day, as the film is filled with long tracking shots of students going out of and into classes, the cafeteria, the gym, or the library. The characters in the film are mostly played by non-actors, and most of the film is improvised.

The Big Movie Watch List of 2021 (222 movies items)

"Several ordinary high school students go through their daily routine as two others prepare for something more malevolent. Don't let the title fool you. This movie doesn't have an elephant in it, but it has a deep meaning that will make your head feel like mush after thinking about it too long. There's no point in me spoiling what unfolds other than the fact it is shocking. Now this movie isn't for anyone and those who are expecting a normal movie structure with three parts, well you are not goi"
