This is an interesting film, but one which depends on the viewer having knowledge, and interest in the subject matter. It reveals a realistic, and sordid existence of republican prisoners in the H blocks of The Maze prison. There are no attempts at sensationalism, and much of the film exposes the utter tedium, loneliness, and uncleanliness of life for those prisoners 'on the blanket'. Unlike the other two films about this period, 'Some Mother's Son', and 'Hunger', this film shows the daily grind of prison life, and the strength, and determination of the republican prisoners, not through the extremity of events so much as the corporate defiance, amidst appalling conditions. The sense of incaceration is compounded by the long periods of inaction, and by the world outside only being seen though the prison wire mesh covering the windows of the cells. Claustrophobic!
