Fortune and Men's Eyes

  • Film
0 Love It
Clumsy adaptation of John Herbert's play (he scripted himself) about homosexual brutalisation in men's prisons. If you believe in a prison that tolerates Michael Greer's flamboyant queen, then you'll probably also believe in Wendell Burton's progress from cute/butch innocence to rapist in the showers.
