Sappy banker is thrown in the clink for a crime he didn’t commit and falls in love with a fellow inmate. Wanders around the prison yard like a man without a care in the world when he’s not tarring roofs or being sodomized. The Kraken from Highlander is disguised as a brutal prison guard seemingly under the impression that Tim Robbins is Christopher Lambert.
Poignant scenes of friendship formed under duress and triumphs of the human spirit but lacks sword fighting and decapitations. Everyone escapes in the end to the planet Saywatanyo and spends the rest of their days sanding boats. Regularly voted the greatest film of time and directly responsible for the increase in homosexuality in the last 20 years. Watch if you’re thinking about killing yourself and you’ll be convinced life is worth living for about a week. Magic.
