Paul and Erin grade two films that vividly portray the breakdown in teacher-student relationships. First: THE CLASS, Laurent Cantet's 2008 Palme d'Or-winning slice-of-life drama about a year in the life of a multicultural French classroom; then, THE FACULTY, Robert Rodriguez's 1998 horror comedy about a group of teenage misfits who join together to battle the bodysnatching aliens who have taken over their high school. The imperfect subjunctive, or Josh Hartnett's imperfect haircut: which will prevail?
Plus: quick takes on BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO, IN A WORLD, THE WORLD'S END, STORIES WE TELL, and ONE DIRECTION: THIS IS US.
