    ★★★★

    I figured this might just be another white-boy hip-hop fantasy film and I guess it still might be. I mean, I'm a white male watching it and I guess it kind of hyped me. Yes, this is a rap film review that rhymes. Skip it if you want—just don't stereotype me.

    Like the movie, this review is hard to get through.

    Some movies are like a storm. There is the calm before the storm, the first gusts, the eye, and then the final tempest rolls through. Like a storm, Detachment whisks you on a directionless emotional flight. When you've finally been put back on the ground, you are just as lost as you were in the air.

    This is a consequential movie that has left me breathless, broken and despondent. If I judge my film of the year based on emotional response, this one might just have it.
