R

Rated NR 96 min. 2011

The jailhouse-picture has a very long, honourable history - but few examples of the genre have ever hit as hard as this - gripping from low-key opening to convention-smashing climax. Filmed in a notorious real-life slammer near Copenhagen and featuring fearsome squadrons of ex-con extras, The Village Voice described R as "claustrophobic and rank with testosterone and gym-sweat, a smothering lesson in prison-yard pecking order."
