    Let's see the teacher's prospective about the careless youths about their teacher and only care about themselves.

    "You may see me, but I am hollow."

    Perhaps, that's how the teachers thinks about their careless students these days.

    Teachers deserve more credit than they given for.

    This is American Beauty levels of "trying too hard;" there are some good moments, but none of those are moments I think the filmmaker wanted to be impactful—those all come off as incredibly shallow and contrived.

    Angry, disorganised and fractured. Tony Kaye's film is an indictement of the American school system that firmly puts the blame on students and parents, and whether you agree or not this is a passionate and memorable film. The main focus is Adrien Brody's substitute teacher, an inspirer and a dreamer whose life is disintegrating outside of classes even as he makes progress with his difficult students, though most of the characters make a solid impression - Lucy Liu is the…

    Some interesting and arty moments where the character's depression has some levity and the points do stick. But the writing is so melodramatic and sometimes unlikeable preachy that I just can't enjoy it enough! Brody was good for the most part, but I don't think this is worth a watch!

    Detachment é algo dentro e fora dessa perspectiva "especial" de um filme "para/sobre" professores. e seus alunos. É cruelmente real e sensível o bastante para que possamos nos identificar com cada personagem criado, ou melhor, jogado na sua cara. Uma escola, um sistema falho, professores cansados, exauridos de uma vida jogada ao léu da educação publica e mal organizada e administrada, alunos que não existem, não passam de fantasmas passando pelos corredores amarelos, sem visão, sem fome de ideias ou conhecimento, sem pensamento, seguem um modelo e estão conformados por essa forma...

    This is a cruel world inside a real life. It makes you think about not only the teenagers' future, and the education system in all its aspects, but also about the immediate family in which the support of the parents is the most important thing for the child.
    We must have children with love, and love them beyond all. If not, ... Life will be complicated for them.

    If you want to suffer, watch it!

    Non è un brutto film, ma il titolo sembra anche una dichiarazione d'intenti; infatti non coinvolge granchè.

    This was one melodramatic rollercoaster.

    Brody once again proves why he's one of the best actors of his generation. He manages to hold a messy film together with his flawless performance as a substitute teacher.

    The one force that keeps this movie from imploding upon itself is Brody's devastating performance. As a man defeated at every turn yet determined to avoid a free-fall into nothingness, it is fascinating to watch a character become so completely enraged at the unbreakable carelessness of the world around him.

    However, the pacing of this movie is absolutely fucked. With depressing chalkboard drawings and brief snippets of Brody's character in an interview setting popping up at random intervals, there becomes…
