Remarkably effective film making.

Miguel Pinero's slice-of-prison-life stage play gets slick and conscientious treatment from director Robert M. Young.

A brutal, compelling slice of prison life, popularly described as "raw and powerful."

Makes the point that prison is a microcosm of society's bigotries and group pressures against undesirable outsiders.

Based on the award-winning play by Miguel Pinero, and directed by Robert M. Young, the film is well-acted with a frightening view of prison life.

Lousy prison drama.
