Customer Review

on 20 April 2006
An austrailian film about life in a hi-tech, maximum security prison, written and starring Nick Cave, doesn't come more brutal than this. Told in a series of flashbacks by the film's protagonist, an ex-prisoner at the facillity, the film tells of the gradual breakdown of order in a penal system cynically run by a faceless corporation. The movie combines shocking realism with a highly polished narrative, but be warned! This is not easy viewing. Murder, rape, violence, self-mutilation, enforced starvation are just some of the features of a prison system torn apart by conflict and manipulation. It is a thought provoking and challenging film, one that will stay with you long after viewing. However, don't expect a 'Shawshank Redemption" - this is about as real as it gets.
