Has the distinction of including not one, but two of the greatest screen performances of all time...undeniably one of the most gut-churning emotional experiences of 1990s cinema... [Blu-ray]

To say that the movie is neither for nor against capital punishment is disingenuous. Still, this is a fine and painful effort overall.

Tim Robbins's balanced yet uncompromising approach refuses to judge any of the characters, including the killer (superlatively played by Sean Penn), instead giving each a fair chance to present their case with dignity and respect.

Dead Man Walking is one courageous film, one of the very best of its time.

Looking Closer

The movie is neither indulgent in its portrayal of emotionally-charged subject matter, nor does it shy away from the consequences of murder.

| Original Score: A+

Penn proves once again that he should stop writing and directing and stick to what he does best.

It takes a truly great film to be so passionate about its viewpoint while still acknowledging and dignifying those who feel differently.

The best film ever made about walking the green mile. The performances of Penn and Sarandon will move you.

An incredibly moving meditation on capital punishment that takes on the unenviable task of showing it from all sides, and then being smart enough to let the audience decide for themselves.

| Original Score: 5/5

Montreal Film Journal

Dead Man Walking is one of these rare films that really makes you think and gives you things to discuss. But if it is indeed an important film, it's also well crafted and gripping.
