A little TOO depressing, but Adrien Brody is good

11 months, 2 weeks ago at Feb 20 23:30
Think of the most depressing movie that you've ever seen, and multiply the grim factor times a million. I guarantee you, the result would STILL look like "The Mickey Mouse Club" in comparison to 'Detachment'.

I'm generally not opposed to sad movies; in fact, I've enjoyed and appreciated many films that some might even label "depressing." However, I prefer sad movies with at least a ... read more

This Movie Diary -spiel within, not spoiler free (74 movies items)

"Comments as watching it: -well that is some fucking despair, i feel repulsed -WHAT. I SWEAR TO GOD IF THERE IS ANY ANIMAL ABUSE IN THIS MOVIE I WILL STOP WATCHING, UGH. omg. why in every movie I watch -tonal shifts are a bit jarring -there is a strong air of depression coming off of this film -acting a little iffy -hell yeah, this is a social justice movie. that speech was excellent -I love, love the way he took her in, but the fact that it involves her domestication irritates -suicide tw - a l"

"20/04/2015 Nuoriso on tuuliajolla, koulutuslaitos rikki ja yhteiskunta on välinpitämätön. 100-minuuttisessa elokuvassaan Tony Kaye kommentoi yhteiskuntaa paljon ja erittäin voimakkaasti. Nuorilla ei ole tulevaisuudenvisioita lainkaan tai pahimmillaan kaikki haaveet tukahdutetaan. Laitoksiin päätyy ihmispoloinen jos toinen, eikä elämä sielläkään helppoa ole. Osittain dokumentaarisestikin kuvattu elokuva vaihtelee hienosti kerronnallista tyyliään genrejen välillä, ja mahtuuhan mu"

"Pros: Fantastic performance by Adrien Brody; a few somewhat interesting characters (besides Brody's character Henry Barthes, I wouldn't have minded learning more about the lonely/"invisible" teacher played by Tim Blake Nelson). Cons: The most depressing movie that I've EVER seen (with virtually nothing to balance the bleakness); too much screen time devoted to less-interesting characters, most of whom are underdeveloped; the "animation" scenes grew tiresome and seemed amateurish; I absolutely H"

A little TOO depressing, but Adrien Brody is good

“Think of the most depressing movie that you've ever seen, and multiply the grim factor times a million. I guarantee you, the result would STILL look like "The Mickey Mouse Club" in comparison to 'Detachment'.

I'm generally not opposed to sad movies; in fact, I've enjoyed and appreciated many films that some might even label "depressing." However, I prefer sad movies with at least a GLIMMER of hope, or a touch of humor -- or SOMETHING besides just nonstop despair, scene after scene. There's very little hope or humor to balance the bleakness that permeates 'Detachment'.

Of course, the title alone hints that this isn't the most cheerful of movies; Adrien Brody's sad face on the poster is kind of a giveaway, as well. And I understand that the film's bleakness is intentional” read more

" Jykevänokkainen sijaismaikka yrittää luovia työpäivänsä puuttumatta muiden asioihin. Pari doorista sekoittaa kuviot. Kollegat on hajoamisen partaalla. Melankolinen kuvaus (koulu)elämästä aneemisen, mutta hyväsydämisen, opettajan silmin. Katsottu: 26/08"
