Balanced View of Death Penalty / Death Row

5 years, 8 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

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: February (42 movies items)

"February 26 "I want the last face you see in this world to be the face of love, so you look at me when they do this thing. I'll be the face of love for you." Damn, this was a pretty depressing watch. It does have exceptional acting from Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn, a compelling true story and some really grim subject matter and I did really like this movie, but it's not a movie I could force myself to watch that many times. Now that's not to say I would never watch it again, but I'm lucky i"

Greatest Film Tearjerking Moments D - G (39 movies items)

"The heart-rending, awkward scene in which Sister Helen Prejean (Susan Sarandon) visited the parents of the girl that convicted killer Matthew Poncelet (Sean Penn) had murdered, and the girl's father's (R. Lee Ermey) hostile incredulity at the nun's counseling of Matthew and her claim that God forgave everyone: "Are you a Communist?"; and the tearjerking ending at the Louisiana prison, including Matthew's last words: ("...I just wanna say I think killin' is wrong, no matter who does it, whether i"

"Katsottu: 14.11.2011 Teksti sploilaa elokuvan loppuratkaisun! Kuolemantuomio jakaa taatusti mielipiteet kahtia. Joten se on jo siksi mielenkiintoinen aihe elokuvaksi. Dead Man Walking kertoo tositarinan kuolemaan tuomitusta rikollisesta, joka ei varsinaisesti osoita katumusta, eikä edes myönnä syyllisyyttään. Elokuvan edetessä asioita kuitenkin alkaa paljastua ja katsojan sympatiat ovat tuomitun puolella. Itse kun en ymmärrä rangaistusta, jossa toiselta viedään henki. Juuri tässä ko"
