All Critics (10)

Stunningly acted, never didactic and yet provoking endless important questions, Michael Inside is a searing portrait of a damaged system, and the boys we lose to it.

Berry has a clear vision of our social problems; his film opens the doors of our prison system and draws the viewer inside.

It's no easy watch, that's for sure -- but it's an important one. Stellar Irish film-making.
