Balanced View of Death Penalty / Death Row

8 years, 4 months ago at Aug 2 21:41
I thought they did a good job showing a balanced view of death row and the death penalty in this film. Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn do an outstanding job in their roles.

A very powerful drama!

Dead Man Walking is in my point of view a very typical prison story because the characters were very original of that particularly because of the theme. This was very typical because it is very emotional with a very interesting story. Dead Man Walking is a prison story of what most criminals are like today: looking for forgiveness and a way for him to be forgiven in the easiest way possible. That ... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. In fact, I even saw it the movie theater when it was released. Well, even though this movie was critically heralded at the time, I have to admit that I actually had some mixed feelings about the damned thing.  I mean, it was a very well made movie, with some really impressive performa... read more

A caring nun receives a desperate letter from a death row inmate trying to find help to avoid execution for murder. Over the course of the time to the convict's death, the nun begins to show empathy, not only with the pathetic man, but also with the victims and their families. In the end, that nun must decide how she will deal with the paradox of caring for that condemned man while understanding the heinousness of his crimes.

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. In fact, I even saw it the movie theater when it was released. Well, even though this movie was critically heralded at the time, I have to admit that I actually had some mixed feelings about the damned thing.  I mean, it was a very well made movie, with some really impressive performances by Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon (she even won the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role) and the material was really strong but, somehow, it didn’t completely work for me. Basically, I had a really hard time with the angle they choose to approach this story. Indeed, even though it made sense since Helen Prejean was nun, they had to put some focus on the fact that Poncelet should ” read more

30 From 95: My Favorite Films From 1995 (30 movies items)

"Excellently directed by Tim Robbins, Dead Man Walking is a movie with a story that purposely and effectively shows both sides to the issue of the death penalty but without taking either stance. And it does so without compromise to it's emotional impact. With a no-holds barred look into the situations that leads to an act of the most heinous nature, the plot weaves in and out of the repercussions of a crime that affects both the victim's and the perpetrator's lives (and loved ones) and then revea"
