Probably the most overlooked film of Edward Norton's career. This movie slid under the radar. Edward Norton proves to me once again why he is my favorite actor. His character is developed well on screen despite it spanning only the 24hours of his life. It has all the ingredients for a movie that men love. It brings home the reality that there are good people in prison. Great movie t shw to a good-hearted person on the wrong side of the law.

The movie is a mess of gritty emotions, none of which I think are completely resolved, as it should be.

Screenplay was excellently produced with lines from Monty - "You had it all, and you threw it away..." James - "Give them a good life Monty. Give them what they need." and Frank - "More jobs means fewer people looking for work. Means it's harder to find good people to fill those jobs. Means you gotta raise wages to get them. Means inflation goes up. …
