An ode to Half Nelson

Half Nelson is one of the most important movies in my life.

I have to skip over a couple parts for the sake of my integrity as a husband and a man,
but nothing rivals Half Nelson.

Social justice,
desire for change,
lack of change,
poverty,
drugs,
empty liberalism,
burnt-out hippies,
surface rallies that change nothing (but help white people feel good),
Ryan Gosling’s excellence,
pain,
joy,
a little bit of change.
Real.

Half Nelson is one of the most important movies in my life.
