This and it's second-cousin, "Elephant," makes we wonder what it says about us that our fiction now has to be real as possible? Especially when it comes to violence - why do we need to see such a faithful retelling of a murder? And why is this technique of making it look like actual footage praised as 'powerful' and 'important'? The movie is not so different than those queasy VHS tapes I watched as a teenager, "Faces of Death."
