School on Fire

School on Fire ★★★★½

A sensation of helplessness, as if it were impossible to go on - I don't think anything could have prepared me for this, for getting bulldozed into a vortex of never-ending pandemonium with a hot dosage of rage and systemic impotence. School on Fire is raw and confronting, sensationalised by Lam's aggression and resentment against the apathetic system - violence begets violence, everyone's shouting, blood does not stop spilling, while chaos erupts like hell on earth. Not just the school that's burning, but the world, and there's no way out.

What a film!
