Teenage angst and toxic masculinity abound in Darko Štante's powerful debut feature, a Slovenian answer to Alan Clarke's SCUM set in a youth detention center and inspired by the director's experience working as teacher in a correctional facility. When Andrej's (Matej Zemljic) youthful criminal tendencies look set to spiral out of control, he is packed off to a center for troubled young men, where he quickly falls in with Zele (Timon Sturbej), the center's bordering-on-psychopathic alpha male gang leader. Beginning a deep dive into violence and criminality, Andrej simultaneously grapples with his unsure identity as a young gay man and the potentially disastrous consequences of his developing feelings for Zele. Official Selection, 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. DIR/SCR Darko Stante; PROD Andraz Jeric, Jerca Jeric. Slovenia, 2018, color, 93 min. In Slovenian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
