Despite being over-plotted and contrived, it ably gets across its point that prison life is hardly human.

Audience Reviews for Convicted


Good film noir story, with terrific actors who are very well cast. Well written and directed. A man is unjustly sent to prison, the film focuses on clearing his name and finding the real criminal. Fine photography.
