I watched HBO’s new movie Dangerous Schooling final week. The entire thing felt a bit like a heist film in reverse — it’s a couple of superintendent who’s stealing cash from his college district, solely you’re watching because the crime unravels, quite than because it performs out.
It’s a enjoyable movie, largely due to Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney taking over some large characters. However the film additionally takes the course loads of true-story films do, the place they fear extra about telling you what occurred than they do about constructing characters.
I believe this works to a degree. It’s a wild story, and so they do an entertaining job telling it. However I want the movie pushed slightly additional into who these individuals are. Displaying the crime solely because it’s unraveled is a cool solution to inform the story, but it surely additionally means we don’t get to be taught a lot about what anybody is doing till it’s a bit too late.
