Gary D Interesting story, good actors, but obviously low budget. Still not a bad movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 11/10/23 Full Review Audience Member It is pretty disjointed. Borderline terrible. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Excellent movie. Very realistic. Small-time angry Punk commits Crime After Crime After Crime. Finally graduates to robbery and rape, among many other felonies. The main character, Caryl Chessman, wonderfully portrayed so that I truly disliked him. Way, way better than the typical B Movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Cheap little noir that has the starkness of "The Killing" but none of the smarts. It's an interesting enough of story that I wanted to see where it was going, but it's nothing all that clever or original. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
