What are people saying?

  • Douglas Reese's rating of the film Detention

    A premise that has all it needs to be an effective chamber piece taking place during an all too socially relevant tragedy. While Jamison's direction is tight (with an interesting use of editing), the film falls into a predicament when the ensemble can't seen to perform anything beyond comedic bravura, and the film's most important performance feels like a hammy James Bond villain. Heart's in the right place.
