My review is the review of a teacher. who discovers "Alternative Math" as a brilliant masterpiece. sure, for the performance of Allyn Carrell. but especialy, for the smart way to present the essence of political correctness, dictatorship of studedents and parents, relativism as essence of social happiness. a great film. for the precise exploration, in absurde manner, at the first sigh, of a real menace against school. that did this short film a must see. as warning. as parable. and as recipe of resistence against few "sweet" demons.
