A Prayer Before Dawn Disutradarai oleh Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire
The definition of an immersive experience, “A Prayer Before Dawn” is a survival story whittled to sweat and sinews. The film’s “Midnight Express”-style abominations aren’t new; what’s different is its director’s impressionistic eye and instinctual connection to his subject’s tribulations. Mr. Sauvaire’s approach may not be for everyone, but his skill and audacity are invigorating — and, strangely, liberating.

Unafraid of the appalling filth and violence of the film’s setting, director Jean-Stephane Sauvaire uses tight framing and a eye for the festering detail of the Thai prison that Yorkshire lad Billy ends up in. While it’s not for the faint-hearted – it features prison rape, sewed-on ears and heroin hidden in all the expected body cavities – it’s a deeply intelligent film about the pitfalls of violent masculinity.

Only when Billy devotes himself fully to perfecting his sporting prowess as a boxer and gives up drugs at last after several relapses does his life start to improve. It’s a classic boxing movie trajectory, but Sauvaire gets extra brownie points for the austere way he tells this oft-told story. Cole’s searing intensity and total commitment to the physical demands of the role is integral to the film’s effectiveness.
