Editorial Reviews

It's only a matter of time.
 
From 20-year-old writer/producer/director Murali K. Thalluri comes the shattering drama of six high school students and the day that will change their lives forever. Each one including a popular jock, an awkward outcast, a fragile beauty, an academic overachiever and a closet homosexual has a dark secret. Every secret carries its own tortuous weight. And for one of them, the pressure will explode today at exactly 2:37. Teresa Palmer (The Grudge 2, The Sorcerer s Apprentice), Frank Sweet and Sam Harris lead a remarkable ensemble cast in this controversial indie that has been called unblinking (Montreal Mirror), extraordinary (Hoopla) and electrically revelatory (In Film), and remains one of the most shockingly accurate portrayals of high school teens in cinema today.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2:37, another hit from Australia May 15, 2010
Format:DVD
I just viewed this film for the third time. This fine analysis of kids at an Australian high school, how they see each other, but also (throught their personal comments) how they feel to themselves. Various stories wind around each other, intersecting, impacting and not, the stories of the lives of these kids, all leading up to a tragedy at 2:37 P.M. These high school students and their pain in this life (remember high school, it's a miracle I survived), their struggle to get on with it are deeply affecting to me. Being inside their skulls is sometimes almost unbearable. This is a very fine film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Debut Film from Murali K. Thalluri May 8, 2012
Format:DVD
I was astonished at the mastery level of this 2006 debut film written, edited, produced and directed by an amazingly talented twenty-one year old Australian, Murali Krishna Thalluri. "2:37" was selected for the Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals and was also the opening film at the Melbourne Film Festival. Among the film's many attributes, the music (especially Faure's 'Requiem') and the sound editing are critical in setting the mood for this sensitive and provocative look at several high school students and how their lives and relationships (or lack thereof) intertwine, implode and explode. The acting, the cinematography and the semi-documentary style of the film kept my attention riveted throughout. For me it was an emotionally devastating experience. Bravo to Mr. Thalluri and to the entire cast and crew!

4.0 out of 5 stars Teenage angst October 5, 2011
Format:DVD
"No man is an island" wrote John Donne in a poem The Complete Poetry and Selected Prose of John Donne (Modern Library Classics) . And, certainly, to think of the human being as an isolated creature makes little sense. We are, after all, social animals. We need others, and we need them desperately. Thalluri's film deals with the intensity of high school and the need of the other, presenting a handful of characters that coexist in the same place. We cannot say they are friends, they barely know each other, each of them carries a burden so heavy that they become estranged, alone, and that's when the fear of losing one's own humanity is ignited.

We have the case of Marcus and Melody: brother and sister. They come from a wealthy family, well structured around male hegemony. Their father is very much alike the primordial father from a tribe that Fred describes in Totem and Taboo. This primordial father can have carnal knowledge with his offspring, because in these mythical prehistoric time no such thing as incest exists; however, the jealous sons will savagely kill the father, this powerful alpha male (a figure that bears some resemblance with Lacan's inverted E, which symbolized "the one man not castrated"). By killing the totem-father only taboo remains, and thus incest becomes the ultimate sin. When Marcus witnesses his father having sex he attributes this attitude as a total disregard for moral codes, after all, Marcus seems to imply that his father acts in such a way that he has no choice but to witness the coitus. This traumatic event triggers something deep inside his consciousness and as a result the incest fantasy and the rape fantasy will become firmly inserted in his psyche.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dumb November 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Too Highschool, and not worth the time to watch. I had hoped for it to lead in SOME direction, but it is aimless Highschool nonsense.

3.0 out of 5 stars Teresa Palmer first big movie April 4, 2013
By Sledge
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie was well done, but the issue is so dark that it is painful to watch at times. I am a Teresa Palmer fan and had heard about her performance in this movie. It was as noted, exceptional. Good movie but tough to watch.
