I worked my way through college at a mental hospital and this film quite wonderfully captures the zaniness, humor, hopelessness at times, but best of all the relatable humanity one finds in a closed world where troubled people need someone else's key to get in and out.
I liked the scenes that Michael Douglas or Josh Brolin were in, otherwise I prefer to remember the original.
Red is a more sophisticated and sometimes very funny variation on the Expendables theme: an older ensemble group in a shoot-em-up. Ironically, Mary-Louise Parker turns out to be the star. Bruce Willis is very good, too. Morgan Freeman, who I love of course, doesn't seem all that comfortable in comedies. Helen Mirren appears lost as well. Still, this is an enjoyable stew.
I can't imagine anything more important than the subject of this documentary: the state of education in this country. I think the message would have been just as effective in half an hour, but it's still something that every grandparent, parent, teacher, and other living and breathing American should see. Clearly our education system is a mess and there are some programs that could help tremendously, and right away.
