  1. Davison gives one of his many bravura performances in this 1977 adaptation of Miguel Pinero's hard-hitting play.
  2. The ensemble is a tight one that places the audience right in the middle of the nightmare.
  3. 50
    Confrontational for its time yet paltry next to any episode of "Oz," Piñero's slim moral quandary is stocked with glib sermonizing and unfocused characterizations, but Robert M. Young's firmly anchored direction creates an appropriate chamber ambience.
  4. Reviewed by: Phil Hall

    Fans of prison flicks would do better to catch the HBO series "Oz" or the five millionth rebroadcast of "The Shawshank Redemption."
