Editorial Reviews

High school loner Robert (Ezra Miller of TV s Californication) would rather surf the web watching extreme videos than make friends at his prestigious boarding school. So when he s forced to take part in a campus activity, Robert naturally chooses a film-making class, which has the added attraction of Amy (Addison Timlin), his sort-of girlfriend. When they unintentionally videotape the accidental overdose of two popular girls, Robert becomes the least likely person imaginable to be assigned the task of creating a soothing memorial tribute. In his bold, audacious debut, writer-director Antonio Campos creates a mood of suspense and mystery worthy of his idol Stanley Kubrick. Afterschool marks the emergence of a major new talent in film.

Format: DVD
This movie has taken forever to be released on DVD in the states. I saw this On Demand off Comcast sometime last year and was surprised by how eerie and well-paced it was. Having said that, the pacing is very slow - very methodic. It's not for everyone. If you like to stick to your action movies (I'm including recent "horror" films like the Friday the 13th remake) you probably won't like this. The film builds on suspense and creepiness as it follows the main character without ever forcing the audience to jump. There's an uneasiness here that is lacking in most modern films. It's not very cinematic either - there's no beautiful cinematography, there isn't any witty dialogue. It lacks all this make-up and doesn't try to look prettier than it is. By doing this the film becomes even more uneasy which, of course, is the point. It's shot almost from the main character's perspective - simple, methodic, and slow. A very interesting character study. If you don't want to think however, and don't have the imagination to be creeped out (not scared), then you should probably stay away.

Afterschool is an intriguing and incredibly moving film. Like most great films, it is not always easy to watch -- it consistently demands that the viewer pay attention to and think about the plot, characters, and themes unfolding onscreen, both as the story unfolds and well after the credits have finished rolling. Many reviewers have mentioned that the film seems to be a commentary on technology and its effects on today's youth; yet, in spite of the fact that modern technology and the boarding school environment are both central aspects of the film, the fundamental struggles, confusions, and adolescent issues at the core of Afterschool are universal, and not constrained either to the 21st century or to elite private schools. This is a fascinating film: difficult, thought-provoking, and immensely rewarding.

This film is shockingly raw and brutally honest. I would recommend this one hundred times if I could. Absolutely brilliant.

Slow paced and hard to watch at times because of the camerawork, but if you like unusual, dark, and real-life subject matter, no matter how bizarre or twisted it may get, then its worth the watch. Not your typical high school drama, which is what makes it so likable. Ezra Miller is very believable and great in this role.

This is not a movie that should be viewed by anyone under the age of 18 as it begins with very explicit scenes. This movie had the potential to be a great movie, but lacked in many areas. At times was very slow and some scenes very mundane leaving you with the feeling that you just wanted the movie to move on. It was also very easy to see where the movie was going which was a spoiler for me, nobody wants to be able to figure out a plot half way through the film. I gave it three stars because I only paid four dollars for it and I guess I got my moneys worth on a day I had nothing else to watch.
