The big winner in this year's Cannes film festival is Gus Van Sant's Elephant, another look at the whole school shooting fiasco-fest. He shot it in Portland (two hours' drive from Springfield,) using unknowns, using significant amounts of improv. (There's bits of commentary about it from people in it over in damnportlanders.)

Maybe it's accurate (by all reports, this year's Cannes crop sucked ass,) maybe it's not. Reminds me, I still haven't seen Bowling For Columbine yet either...
