A suicide victim has been discovered in the bathroom of Adelaide High School at precisely 2:37 p.m. and the movie tells the complex tale of six high school students whose lives are interwoven with situations that so many of today's youth are faced with to show just how any of them could have fallen victim to that overwhelming ennui.

May 29, 2007opting almost frame-by-frame Gus Van Sant's technique on "Elephant", Australian director Murali K. Tharulli is shamefully exploitive in the manner in which he conveys teenage angst in "2:37".
May 27, 2006A queasy exploitation picture masquerading as a serious dramatic treatment.
August 10, 2006There's nothing new about teenage angst, but there's plenty new in the way first time director Murali K. Thalluri treats the subject in 2:37. It's a stunning debut..
May 18, 2007A superficial movie about the horrors of living on the surface.
October 04, 2006The film flows naturally around its central contrivance, employing unforced performances by unprofessional actors and a visual style that uses available light to pull you into the worlds these students inhabit.
June 03, 2007Un exercice tout à fait valable face auquel la réception aurait été assurément plus clémente si Murali K. Thalluri s'était exprimé en utilisant ses propres cordes vocales.
May 18, 2007A self-consciously directed, socially conscious film, 2:37 is too forcefully plotted to ever engage a sympathetic viewing.
September 19, 2006Inspired by Gus Van Sant's Elephant to an almost absurd degree, 2:37 consequently comes off as a pale shadow of its progenitor.
