Bad Education

   25 January 2005, late at night

Bad Education has been getting a lot of praise amongst critics. I had high expectations going in to watch this film, and was for the most part impressed with the movie. The film is billed as yet another priest-molests-children movie; this film is much more than that. There are basically a few periods of time that are examined in the film, some real, some fictional, all focused on the character Ignacio, a boy who was molested by his catholic school teacher. You don’t end up with a clear image of the true nature of the events in the film till the very end. Gael García Bernal does an amazing job playing the lead in the film. He is quite convincing as a drag queen. This film was definitely interesting, and could probably be the source for a lot of good conversation.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
