Half wit

Went to see Half Nelson down the flicks the other day. It went for two hours. The whole Nelson must be grueling.

Did you like it? I found it exhausting but good.

I almost went to see that on Sunday. Unfortunately we deemed it too far away. Is it worth public transport on a Sunday night?

Definitely worth a minor public transport commitment. I wouldn't stretch to more than a bus or two, though. It doesn't make any profound revelations (despite the main character's self-conscious dabbling in a year 7 history class with Hegelian dialectics), but it represents, quite movingly, some unlikely friendships. The main character - a coke-addicted, idealistic, irresponsible, basketball-playing history teacher - is utterly beguiling. He has outstandingly winsome eyebrows; cockerspanielesque. And gets nose-bleeds, no thanks to the marching powder.

For the three blocks I walked to get to the cinema, Half Nelson was worth grappling with. As a fellow pedagogue of the cockily eyebrowed dialectician posing as a basketball coach, I was in stages horrified, bemused and incredulous during the downward spiral that was this teacher's life. Despite the over-realised depravity, the film achieved a neat role reversal, with student as the teacher and so on. That element was satisfying.
