Zero Day

Like Gus Van Sant's Elephant, this low-budget indie is an eerie simulation of the massacre at Columbine High School. The film, starring some impressive first-time actors, unfolds as the video diary of two seemingly normal teens who decide to shoot up their school one random day. The film strenuously avoids pointing fingers, leaving audiences to swim in their own ambiguous conclusions. The ending, shot through school security cameras, is particularly haunting. 95 minutes
