5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Phil on 6 Jan 2012
Format: DVD
This is a very eerie, striking and meticulously crafted piece of cinema. Several themes presented at the start are thoroughly explored. For example, cellphone footage of Saddam Hussein's hanging relates to cellphone recording of a fight between two girls posted online that Robert watches and also cellphone recording of the tragedy. Expectations are constantly undermined: vocal sounds we assume are of pain turn out to be a baby playing; online footage (blocked from view by the back of Robert's head) turns out to be not what we imagined.

The use of the widescreen format is superb. Heads are lopped off, actors are confined to the periphery, an important sex scene takes place just out of shot. The tragedy itself is brilliantly depicted, distantly, through the viewpoint of Robert's static camera, which makes it all the more chilling.

Yes. it's all very clever and cerbral, detached and a tad surreal in mood, but it's also immensely watchable. And you'll be reflecting on it long after you've ejected it from the DVD player.

Format: DVD
Not many films have clearly been able to define the generation of today, but this one succeeds. It makes you wonder, has the internet really made us better or worse as human beings?

The principal is played by the lead actor from A Serious Man, who does another great turn here.

Do not waste your time or your money. This is a boring and unintelligent film. Watch the White Ribbon instead.

Finally 15 Sep 2010
By Anders Seefeldt - Published on Amazon.com
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.

A wonderful, thought-provoking film 12 Sep 2010
By guybrushthreepwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

Best movie I've seen in a while 5 Feb 2014
By Calyn Ehid - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This film is shockingly raw and brutally honest. I would recommend this one hundred times if I could. Absolutely brilliant.
Slow moving but worth the watch! 20 May 2014
By trish - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.
