Watch: Clip From 'Detachment' With Adrien Brody & Lucy Liu Features ADHD Rage

Tony Kaye has two things going for him. 1) Despite his subsequent features being relatively low profile, he directed the excellent "American History X" and thus will have our attention any time he has a new project. 2) He has the single greatest IMDB photo you're ever likely to see.

Detachment

Tony Kaye has two things going for him. 1) Despite his subsequent features being relatively low profile, he directed the excellent "American History X" and thus will have our attention any time he has a new project. 2) He has the single greatest IMDB photo you're ever likely to see.

We reviewed his latest film,"Detachment," at Tribeca and called it a "fascinating mess you can't look away from," but after seeing a trailer for the movie and now this latest clip, the rest of us at the site who haven't seen it are still kind of looking forward to it regardless. We really liked the look of the trailer, which gave off a "Half Nelson" vibe, and the cast, headed by Adrien Brody and including the likes of Christina Hendricks, Bryan Cranston, James Caan, Marcia Gay Harden and Lucy Liu is one that makes you sit up and take notice.

Lucy Liu is the star of this latest clip that arrives via JoBlo. Her character Dr. Parker is dealing with an irate father on the telephone as we cut back to his child getting into a fight, which eventually sees Brody's teacher Henry Barnes breaking it up. We like the way this clip is cut together, with its quasi-documentary feel. So thumbs up on what we've seen so far and we'll see the rest when it arrives on March 16th.
