    Detachment: a dark, melancholic essay on America's crumbling public school system, encompassing themes of death, loneliness and parental abuse. Maybe he did some uncredited cinematography on it.

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 11th July 2012

    'Elegiac': one of those words of whose meaning you've never quite been certain, but you're fairly sure you'd know the thing it describes when you saw it. Now, I reckon Detachment is pretty elegiac. It certainly felt like it. The word kept popping into my head the whole time I was watching it. So bear with me for 900 words or so while I try to figure out whether it was, then I'll look it up. Oh, and if the promise of a dictionary definition's not enough for you, this is one of the best films I've seen all year. Just saying.
