Brawl in Cell Block 99 Regissert av S. Craig Zahler
A study in stylistic purity and stoic love disguised as a grindhouse jail melodrama, with heads crushed like cockroaches and Don Johnson’s prison warden in charge of the last circle of hell, Brawl in Cell Block 99 proves that writer-director S. Craig Zahler is one of the most original talents around. A self-professed metalhead, whose artistic output also includes some good novels, Zahler handles gore and the dramatic arc of his characters with the pace of a classisist—dry, slow, and precise.

A far less nuanced prison drama comes in the form of S. Craig Zahler’s mean-spirited Brawl in Cell Block 99 – a pure genre exercise that touts little external meaning. Its bone-crunching, skull-bashing violence is likely to provoke a love/hate reaction, as was the case with Zahler’s previous film, horror-western Bone Tomahawk… It’s incredibly good fun – and sure to make a few hand-wringers uncomfortable.

The title is pure grindhouse, but “Brawl in Cell Block 99” reaches some distance beyond simple prison-movie exploitation. For one thing, the buildup is so grippingly patient that we’re more than halfway through before the titular battleground is reached. And for another, this painstakingly paced thriller displays an intensity of purpose that makes it impossible to dismiss as well-executed trash.
