Critic Reviews for 1:54
"1:54" intends to be a straight-shooting social drama about the multifaceted problem of bullying in the digital age, but it's out of touch with how real teenagers think and act and communicate. It's a modern film that feels like a relic.
A potentially meaningful movie that hands us a double dose of despair when a ray of hope was needed.
This timely Quebecois drama can sometimes creep too far into afterschool special territory, but the intense emotions on display give it a certain raw staying power.
It's common for filmmakers to appear out of touch when making contemporary films dealing with bullying, often over-sensationalising and losing grip of reality. For Yan England's film to feel grounded is something of an achievement.
... 1:54 is so convinced of its own convictions that it fails to recognize that it's running towards the wrong goal.
