High School

Director: Frederick Wiseman

Peter Janssen in Newsweek says: ‘High School shows the overwhelming dreariness of administrators and teachers who confuse teaching with discipline. The school somehow takes warm, breathing teenagers and tries to turn them into 40-year old mental eunuchs… No wonder the kids turn off, stare out windows, become surly, try to escape… The most frightening thing about High School is that it captures the battlefield so clearly.’
