Rated 5 out of 5 by Jules321 Great film, every teen should see.
Hi, I had the pleasure of seeing Archie's Final Project a few years back at a film festival when it was titled "My Suicide". The first thing I thought while walking out of the theater was wow, that is nothing I have ever seen before. You will be amazed at the details, design, fast editing that this film has thoroughly examined. For the film, it deals with a heavy subject, teenage suicide. Now out of all the films I have seen, "The Virgin Suicides", "Thirteen" (that was a pretty good one), for this generation Archie's Final Projects hits directly home. Every thing said, done, is exactly what teenagers are going through, without being too overly dramatic or lacking of. There are even hits of comedy which makes moments of laughter, but overall the seriousness of the film and the message is real, you are submerged with the characters and the emotions that you can't help but feel. Archie is a kid that genuinely yearns for connection, the feeling of being in touch with others. He is a media geek, but who isn't nowadays in this 21st century? With all this technology, I can see why someone would break. With that being said, please do yourself a favor, and watch this film. At least once, and educate your children.. Teachers, parents, mental health professionals this is a must.
