    Zero for Conduct


    "Do you realize the immensity of our moral responsibility?"

    Jean Vigo's 'Zero For Conduct' is rebellious yet feels so scattered and jarringly edited, I couldn't make sense of certain scenes and didn't feel much of an impact in the end.

Amber Midthunder is tremendous in the role of Naru, a fearless young warrior in the 1700s who's looking to make a name for herself yet gets more than she bargained for with the arrival of the Predator, who has a slightly varied…
