This movie didn't need to be based on a true story to be a powerful film. And when a film has this ability, all I can do is express my biggest praise.
I love Steve McQueen (the British filmmaker, not the actor), and in his directorial debut he shows us how talented he is.
The story is told in a very non-linear and rather odd, but also very real fashion. It is told through various perspectives, a very good idea. The imprisonment of the revolutionaries is seen from all points, good and bad, allowing insight into the question if: Is this right or is this wrong?
This is the most important question of the movie, and every character, whether it be the prisoner refusing to wash or the prison guard who only does what he's told, asks it. Without even speaking.
Judging an artistic movie is on...
