Tim Robbins Großbritannien, 1995

ExitBxC's rating of the film Dead Man Walking

It takes one of the most complex issues of our time (along with Tony Kaye's "Lake of Fire") and treats it with the respect it deserves. It's not a film "of style", who cares? It's a film of people. And to watch Sean Penn do what he does (without being able to use his hands, arms, body, he's shackled most of the movie) is remarkable. It offers no answers, for there are none. Everyone is right & everyone is wrong.
