This weeks film, as chosen by Constellations, is Felon(2008, director Ric Roman Waugh). It's an American drama about a man who ends up in prison after he kills an intruder.

IMDB plot summary:

A loving family man with a promising future loses everything when he accidentally kills the burglar who broke into his home. Convicted of involuntary manslaughter, he is sentenced to spend the next three years inside a maximum security facility where the rules of society no longer apply.


Trailer:

I was personally put off by the cover art of this film but the trailer definitely changed my mind, it looks good.

So post any of your opinions or criticisms on the film in here and sorry about this thread not being up when i said it would, i'll attempt to stick to the same sort of time range between threads from now on.

Thanks.

this movie was so damn good. definitely underrated. plus his wife has been hot since she was on vegas vacation.

edit: the trailer really should have shown more of the plot. looks just like a low budget movie about the crazy shit that goes on in prison from the trailer

^Or you could just watch the film, the point of the thread. As for me I'll probably watch this tomorrow, disappointed that i didn't get round to watching Death Proof so I'll definitely give this a go.

I kind of agree with Infamous. I think it was trying too hard to be something that it's not. I didn't quite get the purpose of all the outside stuff with Jackson... and even his wife, to be honest. It was entertaining though. I think A Prophet did a better job of what this movie was sorta trying to be.

word, A Prophet was fucking amazing.

Felon definitely has its edge though. A man with the family outside living in the world of wolves

He had to change and adapt in order to survive. fucking crazy. Let's not forget the REAL MAN in this movie; Val Killmer as the man with the horrifying past finally opened up to another human being and gave the main character's life back with his.

I like how there are many perspectives are going on in the prison. The new guard who wanted to do things right way in contrast to the old guard who believes prisoners are just animals etc.

Marisols Nicols as a wife; my jaw dropped when she had to get naked n get frisked. LOLOL

*I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Been awhile since i watched it though

saw this a while back. good prison movie. like the dude above said there are lots a few conflicts going on at the same time. the main character, then val kilmer, the new guard/old guard etc. I give it a 7.3-5 ish.
