Privilege and Obsession

In May 2014, Oberlin College student Stephen Graves spent the nine days between final exams and graduation videotaping commentary from his classmates as they prepared to enter the so-called real world with their extremely expensive ($60,000/year) liberal arts educations. The usual collegiate vices—drugs, alcohol, and intellectual arrogance—are on full display, and Graves takes a few potshots at his rich classmates with such supposedly damning imagery as cafeteria workers scraping leftover food into the garbage. If you want to know what's wrong with higher education in this country, check out Andrew Rossi's well-researched documentary Ivory Tower; this anecdotal exercise never rises above the vague observations and liberal posing of its well-lubricated interview subjects.
