Weapons Review


Good
The older I get, the more scared of teenagers I become. Those little amoral monsters! Weapons, a 2007 Sundance pick that came and went without a trace, does nothing to ease my mind. The teens in Adam Bhala Lough embody a casual nihilistic evil so dark that it almost makes you wish for a complete planetary reboot. If these kids are the future, then let's end it all right now.

Sean (Mark Webber) returns to his scruffy SoCal home after a year of college to find that his two no-good friends, macho foulmouthed Jason (Riley Smith) and nerdy filmmaker-wannabe Chris (Paul Dano), are right where he left them, hung over, stoned, and bored. Looking for something to do on a hot useless morning, the three drive over to the basketball courts to see about a pickup game. No sooner is the ball bouncing, however, than Jason is shot squarely in the chest by a young black boy and dies on the spot.

The tagline for this movie, "Graffiti Can Be A Powerful Weapon" doesn't get it right. What this glimpse into the life of public wall-covering artists -- taggers, if you will -- really seems to be saying is that this nocturnal habit is a ticket to public loathing, constant fear of arrest, immersion into a degrading existence, and, possibly, an early and violent end.

Twenty-three year old debuting writer-director Adam Bhala Lough amps up the life of a graffiti bomber in a visual style generated on the cutting table. And, while some might call a technique of overlapped time cuts, freeze frames that thaw, jump frames and general image deviltry a daring adventure in underground cinema, others may see it as too much hip stylization.
