Kuldesak #

Released 11/20/1998

Description: The movie weaves around four stories all event in metropolitan, dehumanizing Jakarta. In fact that is what it is about, the quality of meaninglessness of living in a zone that turns folks into zombies. In a zone where meaning gotta be invented, these children turn into the only place, the only culture they see worth tuning into: tv and movies. Thus they slowly degenerate into the abysmal reinterpretation in a sort of sickening anti-hero, anti-social statements that goes absurdly a wrong turn.

Duffy of San Quentin Reviews:

Although the screenplay is based on The San Quentin Storyline by Clinton Duffy and Dean Jennings, this film emerges as a slow prison drama. Actually, the script divides into three clearly stand-alone episodes and should justly be described as a portmanteau film. The first and third episodes are now fairly interesting, despite the fact that the first is a routine, thoroughly conventional storyline about the fresh prison warden vs the sadistic captain of the guards, plus the tough convict the warden reforms. The third episode revolves around that old chestnut about the state prosecutor himself being sent to jail. However, it's a tribute to the acting, the photography and Walter Doniger's driving direction that these segments come across fairly well. But nothing can save the second segment, a long-winded acc of the female prison hospital nurse vs resentful male subordinates. Unfortunately, Doniger obviously found this ep as uninteresting to him as it is to us. His work is dull, utilizing very tiny camera movement and relying almost wholly on close-up after close-up. With John Alton on camera, this procedure also draws attention to the presence of some really ancient stock shots. U.K. release title: Boys Behind Bars.


I had no concept that San Quentin was in Marin County California. So my sojourn into prison life began with this film. What a adventure and very impressed with the treatment of the delicate topics of wrongly imprisoned inmates. I was horrified by the corporal punishment routinely relinquished by hardened guards.I have no experience in trying to tame unruly, ruthless, evil criminals and imagine that San Quentin saw the worst of them. How should a brand fresh warden create an impact. Well, this storyline provides an insight on how to create a difference. How well this Hollywood ver is real to the facts is unknown but I know well that one person can definitely create a difference in this world.High suggest for perspectives on obstinate determined and wife loving wardens who strive for excellence. I pray for the many wrongfully imprisoned folks who deserve a second possibility to prove their innocence.


Although it does drag in spots Duffy Of San Quentin is a fine acc of the most popular person in his position during his time and possibly for all time. I'm now in awe of the fact that he did not test any stool pigeons which law enforcement survives in.This is not now the storyline of the storyline of Clinton P. Duffy, it is in fact the acc of one particular inmate whose time at San Quentin is said through Duffy's eyes. Louis Hayward is that inmate and as we learn is in the joint because of perjured testimony and defense witnesses who disappeared.Hayward is a true difficult situation and who should blame him. Duffy is played by Paul Kelly and Kelly himself did a stretch for manslaughter so he had some real insights into convict mentality. Maureen O'Sullivan played the supportive Mrs. Duffy. Duffy was a true innovator and in fact brought in a civilian nurse played by Joanne Dru. I'm not sure how that worked out sending Dru in with a several thousand of the hardest situations around.The end has the prosecutor who sent Hayward up played with his usual relish by George MacReady. I won't tell more except that one was a bit much to swallow.I want Paul Kelly had done a factual acc of Clinton P. Duffy's life. That would have been a nice film. Duffy Of San Quentin which followed certain prison picture parameters was good, but nothing outstanding.
