A good movie

2 years, 9 months ago at Jul 12 9:20
I wasnโ€™t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I always had a weak spot for Robert Redford, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, I have to admit that I had no clue what this movie was about before watching the damned thing. As a result, at first, I thought it was a gritty drama about a new prison inmate who was trying to survive in one of the worst jails I have ever seen. Of c... read more

“I wasnโ€™t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I always had a weak spot for Robert Redford, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, I have to admit that I had no clue what this movie was about before watching the damned thing. As a result, at first, I thought it was a gritty drama about a new prison inmate who was trying to survive in one of the worst jails I have ever seen. Of course, it turned out that Brubaker was not just some ordinary inmate, he was in fact the new warden who was spending a couple of weeks undercover as an inmate to discover his prison from within. Well, even though I understand Brubakerโ€™s logic for going for this strategy and even though I understand that it did look pretty bad-ass, I think this approach actually pretty much derailed the whole thi” read more

"Robert Redford plays the title character who chooses to go into a prison farm as a convict to see at first hand how the farm is run and what he sees shocks him, which in turn rightly shocks the viewer as well. After learning all he needs to, he comes forward to take control of the farm and tries to put an end to the torture, corruption and dank depression that is rife at the farm. He has to deal with many obstacles along the way and it's the strength of the man that has the viewer firmly onside "
