Sometimes I don't understand what detachment is, just waiting for that hysterical moment

Until the moment of watching this film, the poignant Gothic beauty that I pursued when I was young has never left myself. When life enters a certain morbid exhaustion time, you can really see the desolation around you. But this kind of complexity and confusion was far beyond what the little kid who only knew about the visual department at the time could understand.

This kind of gloom, the first moment you see his eyes, you already know that at some point in the film, you will completely give up the psychological defense line built by your years of life, and wait for that hysterical moment in 97 minutes.

When we were young, we believed that life was so simple. After 10 years, you will find that life is really as complicated as adults say. In the end you find that the whole society is a prisoner, a prisoner of money, a prisoner of time, a prisoner of lies, but we all end up defaulting to this cynicism.
Living in such a failure

you have to keep an independent mind, but this is a double contradiction, so you have to believe the lie.

Perhaps we will see the ultimate lie withering along with the Gothic Castle, eroding the once mighty into eternal desolation.
The rest is detachment, accompany the lie into the irreparable decline

    Depressed. We always want to change the world, but in the end we find that nothing can be changed. We always try to save those we love, only to realize in the end that we can't even save ourselves. Adrien Brody's tearful look on the bus is powerful enough to bring me grief across the screen. The look in his eyes reminds me of Guillaum.

Detachment quotes

  • Henry Barthes: Y'know it's funny, I spend a lot of time trying to not have to deal... to not really commit. I'm a substitute teacher, there's no real responsibility to teach. Your responsibility is to maintain order, make sure nobody kills anybody in your classroom, and then they get to their next period.

  • Mr. Wiatt: I was in my room for 2 hours and saw one parent. Where are they? Where is everybody? It's uncanny, no air raid sirens, not bombs. It doesn't happen that way. It starts with a whisper, and then nothing.
