" Notes: The interesting thing with this flick is that, on a paper, it did sound rather shabby but the execution was just nothing short of brilliant. During the first 5-10 minutes, I thought it might turn out to be another teacher-student flick, something between 'Entre les murs' and 'Dead Poet Society' but, fairly quickly, it became something completely different.

" DVD- 1hr. 47min. First Viewing While it occasionally has a hard time shaking it's familiar set up (addiction, mentor, etc.), Half Nelson eventually blooms into an authentic, piercing work that features superb work from Ryan Gosling and Shareeka Epps, and humane and sincere writing.
