Misery porn party for a bunch of caricatures who never feel like people, with Brody as the host, playing the usual whiny martyr who's sticky from all the phony empathy he's rubbed all over himself. Preachy, condescending and sentimental, it's insincere from beginning to end. No wonder I'd forgotten I'd already seen this film. That's never a good sign.
Incredibly heavy handed and sometimes oppresively bleak, Detachment nonetheless has a lot of emotional weight, mostly as a result of Brody's achingly human performance.
Good art film but very depressive and sad.....Some dialogues are thought provoking but whole movie is about how the teachers fight with their emotions when watching the kids spoils their own life...
Goddamn this is a melodramatic and simplistic depiction of the state of the educational system. It's decent but nothing more. Half a star extra for daddy Adrien though because he never fails me.
i loved that this never got boring for me, one scene even made me cry like a baby. i want to watch more films with adrien brody in
The point is.. Either you find it or not. In this utterly dark world of ourselves.
Un poco rara la película, bueno no, pero si la técnica me desconcertó mucho, principalmente por que parece una especie de ''The Office'' hecho por estudiantes
Muy bonito como retrata la sociedad, mostrándonos la cruda verdad y toda la mierda que soportan ciertas personas.
Esta es de esas películas que todo el mundo debería ver para que tomen conciencia de que toda acción tiene una reacción.

Not even Brody's acting can save this overly melodramatic piece of crap.
The editing was kinda fun but the dialogues don't feel real if you're not coming from tumblr.
Interesting how this movie is at the same time a flow, a song of scenes and shots and feelings ; and a breaking rhythm with the interviews, the drawings and the changes of points of view.
Its format, the grainy film, the free camera work, all of it is a mirror of the main character's position. Of course Adrien Brody's charismatic presence says a lot without saying anything.
It's not my kind of movie but I was riveted and touched.…
Cupcakes looked delicious.
A movie about a depressed teacher who has to take care of his depressed grandfather. His colleagues are also depressed and so are his students. Depressingly, the movie loses focus while telling all these depressing tales, but a depressed Adrien Brody saves the day.
I had a ball.
