Apt Pupil (1998) Bryan Singer, Ian McKellen, Brad Renfro, Joshua Jackson

apt-pupil-1998
Neighborhood boy Todd Bowden (Renfro) discovers that an old man living on his block named Arthur Denker (Mackellan) is Nazi war criminal. Bowden confronts Denker and offers him a deal: Bowden will not go to the authorities if Denker tells him stories of the concentration camps in WWII. Denker agrees and Bowden starts visiting him regularly. The more stories Bowden hears, the more it affects his personality.

This film is not for the light of heart or of mind. The story is about a boy who learns that a Nazi war criminal is living right in his metaphoric backyard. Obsessed with learning more than just what they teach you in school, the boy sets off on a journey to discover “How did it feel?” The writing, based on a novella by Stephen King, takes you through the minds of both the boy and the Nazi. It’s a battle of wits with real people being the pawns. This movie will mess with your mind. Do not watch it if you aren’t up to the challenge. My hat goes off to Brandon Boyce and Bryan Singer, the writer and director, respectively, who seem to have interwoven the story and the audience. Never have I witnessed such an excellent display of psychological warfare.

Also Known As (AKA): Un élève doué, Der Musterschüler, L’allievo, Sob Chantagem, Verano de corrupción
