Inspired by Gus Van Sant's Elephant to an almost absurd degree, 2:37 consequently comes off as a pale shadow of its progenitor.

opting almost frame-by-frame Gus Van Sant's technique on "Elephant", Australian director Murali K. Tharulli is shamefully exploitive in the manner in which he conveys teenage angst in "2:37".

This is a sad, sad movie. Compelling but with some very sordid aspects and a heartbreaking denouncement.

Super-predictable story about six high school misfits goes exactly where you think it's going to go -- right up to the end, which is only slightly less… More
