_Teacher_ is an interesting one. It's not shot especially well, and some of the acting could have been better. Not David Dastmalchian though, he was **fantastic**. Which I guess was kind of a surprise, not because I've ever seen him be bad in anythinng before, just because I don't think he's ever had the oppurtunity of enouygh screen time to prove it before. At least not in anything that I've watched. But as much as _Teacher_ gives him the oppurtunity to shine, what it's really about is bullying. The message it drives is somewhat muddled, but it revolves around the cycle of violence, and the choices we make when we're caught in it. I don't know if I agree with everything Teacher has to say on the subject, but this isn't propaganda, so not being on the same page doesn't render the thing moot.
_Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
