  1. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Riot in Cell Block 11

    Arguably made better because of its dynamite (pun intended) production - using real Folsom prison inmates, riot scenes have a docu, gritty urgency. Gordon, a former inmate himself, had to be searched each day just to make sure he wasn't helping the real convicts escape. The proximity to reality is supported by a text from Hard Men Peckinpah and Siegel that leaves nothing to the imagination.

  2. Ciprian David's rating of the film Riot in Cell Block 11

    the men's bodies, emanating raw force, were the most interesting. ant the shift in power for the warden character.
