Audio 2: Commentary by Director Robert M. Young and Leon Ichaso
A young man who is charged with child molestation is placed in New York City’s infamous Tombs prison. When the other inmates in his cell block find out what he is charged with, life becomes extremely difficult for him. Half hardcore exploitation picture and half confrontational art film, this is certainly not for the claustrophobic. You are LOCKED IN this cell block with the zealots and the pimps and murderers and crooked screws, all looking for a reason to stick you or fuck you.
Intense prison drama! An excellent script based on the prison memoirs of some guy who had a supporting role in it. Both he and another ex-con who also got a role re-offended and ev. died in the eighties. This was Guzman’s first role btw and if Imdb listing is to be believed Joe Pesci is in it too. A shame that it flopped but it was probably too progressive and controversial even for its time. Audio commentary will be interesting. Thanks.
