A little TOO depressing, but Adrien Brody is good

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

I'm not opposed to sad movies -- I've enjoyed and appreciated many movies that some might even label "depressing" -- but I prefer sad movies with at least a GLIMMER of hope, or a touch of humor, or somethin... read more

"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, many of whom were underdeveloped (Nelson's character was also underdeveloped, despite being one of the more"

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

I'm not opposed to sad movies -- I've enjoyed and appreciated many movies that some might even label "depressing" -- but 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 happiest of films; Adrien Brody's sad face on the poster is kind of a clue, as well. And I understand that the bleakness is intentional (and sort of the point of the movie).

However, the dark t” 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"
