Save it
A characteristic, off-beam offering from James B Harris, a former Kubrick collaborator, this starts out as a straightforward prison movie but soon splinters into a wayward character study of morally irredeemable individuals. Woods' prison warden, 'Fast-Walking' Miniver, is up to every scam in the book, but his trade in pimping and the like is disrupted by the rumpus over the arrival of black political activist Hooks and the growing megalomania of trustee inmate McIntire. Downbeat, greasy and with a genuinely eccentric sense of humour.
