    This was a pretty bad movie. I'm pretty embarrassed at how much I enjoyed it.

    I love the inspiring touch achieved which seems inconceivable at first sight.

    But I think that If I were knocked out by stuff like this for an entire day I'd most likely end up killing myself. Holy shit. I've been officially overwhelmed. This needs a few more viewings...

    Starts off like it's going to be interesting, featuring a collection of talking heads relaying how they kind of fell into teaching for lack of having anything better to do career wise. (Those who can't do... ) And then Adrien Brody is introduced as Teaching Jesus, super substitute, shown to be selfless and implacable as he navigates the mine field of an inner city school and the heart of a teenaged prostitute he rescues from the streets. It all comes…

    A marvellous character study that examines with dark, unpleasant themes with confidence and passion. Director Tony Kaye doesn't hold back in this dissection of a broken system breaking people.

    Dont watch this if your training to be a teacher. Maybe leave it a few years.

    How have I never heard of this or seen it before today? Adrien Brody is such an incredible actor and I am always reminded of that when I watch him express so much emotion and deliver lines so beautifully. I am always amazed at his way of engaging viewers even if the movie itself isn't that great.

    And this one was great, so it was even better. As a huge fan of American History X , I was happy that…

    "I'm a non-person, Sarah"

    We are brought into a world that is influenced by both chance and choice. Some try to make the best with what they're given. Some blame for what they're given. Some simply let it wash over, just being indifferent to the whole thing. Some give up.

    A commentary on a broken American education system, Tony Kaye's Detachment is a film that dramatises the frustrations that is shared amongst everyone involved. We have struggling teens (both academically…
