Polytechnique (2009)

Option 1Option 2

Avg Rating: 4.1 / 5. Voted: 45

No one cared thus far. Do you?


AKA:
Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
Starring: Maxim Gaudette (Killer), Sébastien Huberdeau (Jean-François), Karine Vanasse (Valérie), Evelyne Brochu (Stéphanie)
Country: Canada; Effed Up Canadian Cinema
Language: French (Eng Subs); Effed Up French Movies
Runtime: 01:16:58
Genres: Based on a True Story, Mass Killings, Violence against Women

Plot – Spoilers:
He hates women especially feminists, who could be any woman in a non-traditional role. But he’s not above tomming on his female neigbours. So it might be that he hates them because he wants them so much. What I can’t have, I will destroy.

Based on the 1989 mass shootings at a Montreal engineering school, the killer there had applied twice and failed to secure admission. In his case, there’s more of a backstory available for those interested in an opinion on his possible motives. With the film however, anyone’s guess is equally valid.

There’s a needless diversion that seems to be some kind of statement about women making it in engineering, but Polytechnique is mostly focused, in its style, and on the crime.

Literally every comment you make is worse than the last, Just keep digging that hole deeper. Everybody on EUM laughs at you. Now go get some rest, dad.

And they are a fucking idiot, commenting 6hr later they didn’t know it was based on a true story. Outstanding. Probably some worthless balija, having a username like that. Now all we need is that loser kid Chase, and we can have a meeting of the minds….

I attend one of the polytechnic engineering schools, the one located in Paris and I just wanna say that I worked extremely hard on my graduation grade to get it. It’s an elite school and they only let smart people in. Also i’m a girl. That incel was just mad women were smarter than him and got in. Incels and woman haters are nothing but pathetic losers with a masculinity as fragile as egg shells. Women are not your doormats anymore and guess what they don’t need to submit to demeaning traditional roles either. So go fuck yourselves cause no high quality woman will touch an incel not even with a 10 meters stick. Feminism did a good job turning your kind into the butt of the social ladder.

Lol struck a nerve. Polytechnique is no shitty engineering school a simple google search will prove your ass wrong. It’s literally recognized as one of the bests in Europe and only lets in people who graduated with at least 17 out of 20 grade and that takes intelligence and discipline and yeah not dumb people can’t do engineering cause it requires maths but I don’t expect an incel peasant key board warrior such as yourself to comprehend that. I won’t waste more time arguing with your kind I deal with enough incels in real life all I can say is you all are equally pathetic can’t even hate you just feel sorry for you.

I literally went to community college and dropped out after a year of uni. It’s funny you mentioned Google, because that’s where I work. Without having gotten a degree from your prestigious bumschool 🙂 Why don’t you try applying at Google or any of the big tech. Our AI HR would weed your likes out before a human even bothered to read your bumschool resume :))

Also, you obviously don’t know what an incel means because you talk of meeting them in real life. Those are not incels. They’re your classmates at bumschool haha.

Google and big tech companies would never hire someone that doesn’t have at least a bachelors degree and a couple of years in the field, so why the fuck would they hire an incel basement dweller community college drop out ? Keep dreaming. My school has the highest employment rate in the country and Companies like Apple and Amazon are horny af for engineers that received high quality education such as the one my prestigious tech school offers so suck a dick and die mad about it. It’s pathetic and funny when people who haven’t worked hard on shit in their life not have any goals talk down on people who worked hard for their goals.

Because the majority of people think like this bad bitch lol Arm yourself with a fancy degree and the world’s your oyster. Maybe in the good ol’ days. Not anymore. Anyone with half a brain, a good support system that can include rich parents (1/4 brain sufficient) or just a stable home, can get themselves admitted to a prestigious school. You just need to be ambitious and motivated. This cunt thinks she’s smart but her mediocrity is obvious. She just slogged her way through high school while the rest of her peers were having fun or understanding the world. Now she feels priveleged, because all that work and effort should count for something. Right? Wrong. The companies that are actually doing something meaningful and pushing boundaries don’t give a fuck about your degree. As I said, her retarded resume would be weeded out by our AI HR before she even made it to the several rounds of interviews where her pathetic bookish knowledge would anyway be schooled. But then, what do I know lol. With a little bit of luck I might just be one of the guys interviewing her. Will keep a lookout for any potentials from her bumschool, though I’m not sure how I’d bring this up – that I came across you on a site called effedup movies lmfao.

(Thought train) Personally, I liked films like Elephant better, but this does a really good job at looking at the situation plainly. It hits hard. I went through a tough week recently involving assault and have been thinking a lot about the relationships between men and women, how men feel ostracized and women are demonized (to put it broadly). Although obviously, this is nowhere near the main point or theme of the film, it still makes me hold hope that we can still spread awareness about mental health and the futility and overarching destructive nature of sexism and how it is ingrained in the culture, bc we all know there are still boys out there who hold these murderers as their icons and heroes and men who could care less if a woman is murdered or assaulted.

Another good movie. Thanks adm.

I read about the case some time ago, and is nice to see the movie here.
Well, What can you expect from a left wing progressive country like Cucknada, where they glorify mental illness, and are all about inclusivity, tolerance and multiculturalism? You just have to see the movie, some dangerous freak that probably suffered ASPD (at some point he even states that he was rejected by the police for being ”antisocial”) going around walking free, instead of being locked in a cell in a psychiatric hospital, until either he learned to act like a normal human or permanently or with a bullet in his head. Yet, there he was, free. Terrible.

And on top of it, a fucking incel loser. Maybe i saw wrong, but the movie insinuated that there was a girl he liked there hahaha. Is funny that his whole reason to commit a shooting, was because he ”hated feminists”, yet he just went and kill a bunch of random girls that probably had nothing to do with feminists, just some random irrelevant students. Incels freaks like him are all about ”hating women” but they will never touch feminists groups. They will just go a kill randoms. At the end of the day, incels, feminists, etc are all left wing scum. Groups of people that suffer from severe mental problems and their whole life revolves around hate, resentment, envy and entitlement. And people like that should be prune for the greater good.

Sepulchral. Villeneuve produces visually inventive, uncompromising, and umbrageous cinematography. Coherent of human identity and trauma.
