Shadowy figures circle a glass-walled house. They locate an opened entryway and enter; once inside, they set out straight toward the room. Sleigh Bells’ “Crown on the Ground” scrunched guitar and speaker-destroying drums kicks in. The figures’ appearances are currently obvious; they’re secondary school kids a few young ladies and a kid. They open the entryway of the room storeroom and begin getting pieces of jewelry, shoes and totes.
This is the primary scene of “Active Shooter,” Sofia Coppola’s unvarnished and once in a while risky record of a series of robberies submitted by LA adolescents in 2008 and 2009. The opening credits distinguish “Active Shooter” as “taking into account real occasions,” rather than utilizing the more regular expression “in light of a genuine story”; this may appear like a minor qualification, however it’s a critical one, since “story” infers a specific structure and perspective. Coppola’s way to deal with the subject is to a great extent fair-minded; contingent upon the viewer, this can appear to be invigorating or off-putting.
