Director Brett Simon made his first feature film. Before that, he had only two experiences of directing experimental short films. In the process of directing this film, he fully demonstrated how important experience is to filmmaking, and he has a serious lack of control over the film. The style is too messy. Fortunately, there are still many bright spots in this film. The beautiful cast, good music and editing, and the cameo of Bruce Willis make this film a little tougher. . .
In fact, the director is talking about a movie very seriously, and wants to talk about the complexity of high school life. Unfortunately, due to the huge regional cultural differences, it is difficult for domestic audiences to truly understand the intention of the film, so they can only speculate on the style. . .

    If you stick to the first thirty minutes of the film, you'll see that this isn't just another high school movie. The gestures of the characters in the film seem to mirror the adult world. There are several scenes that can't help but make people serious. Unfortunately, the ending goes back.

    He is the president of the high school student union, not the principal. The principal is principal in English. The film itself is very speechless, it is probably too serious a spoof, so I can't be sure if it is a spoof or not.

Assassination of a High School President quotes

  • Bobby Funke: Look Clara... I am the best writer you got.

    Clara: Bobby, you've never finished an article.

    Bobby Funke: [sternly] Well, are you going to give me this one, or not?

    Clara: ...No.

    [awkward pause]

    Bobby Funke: Do you want to come to Homecoming with me, then?

    Clara: [smiles] ... No.

    Bobby Funke: [narrating] Clara was one tough cookie. All I wanted was a taste.

    [Funke sighs and walks away]

    Bobby Funke: [narrating] You want to know the truth about high school? You've got to break it down into its elements. Unfortunately, at St. Donovan's, the periodic table is more crooked than a case of scoliosis. Just give me the chance and I'll set it all straight. Case in point, Spanish homework. "Dame un batido de esperma" does not mean, "Take me to the airport." It means, "Give me a sperm milkshake." And 22 kids gave that as an answer in Spanish 3 last week. I'm not sure about the milkshake, but somebody is sure feeding us something sticky. Every clique on campus is copying the same damn homework. Burn-outs, pretty boys, drama-dorks, jocks, debaters, player-haters, you name it. Oh, it's big, all right. And I'm on it like pink rubber bands on your little sister's braces. The name's Bobby Funke. I write for the paper.
