Having been out of the film business for nearly a decade, American History X director Tony Kaye makes a welcome return to the director’s chair and takes a hard look at the American education system in Detachment. #film #independentfilm #movies #education
Detachment comes from Tony Kaye who directed American History X. A grim & hard hitting story about the US education system. The writer wants to make a point & does succeeds but it's dark & one sided. Adrian Brody plays a complex character, a teacher troubled by his childhood, compassionate but with difficulties to open up. This is a strong story with great dialogues & performances. This is a heavy film that addresses questions around education, mental health & the responsibility of parents.
