A story about this — 5 years ago
Gorgeous cinematography, but Van Sant didn’t seem to have anything to say. By closely following the victims and omitting any explanation or motivation for the killers’ actions (instead showing them playing FPS and purchasing guns), it just comes off as flat and emotionally manipulative. GVS is better than this, and is fully capable of showing the good within the awful. Why he chose not to bewilders me.
