Deathwatch
King of the mountain played for keeps inside of a prison makes this an interesting survival film. Three prisoners--one a condemned murderer, one a thief and one a homosexual--are thrown together. The murderer, being there for the largest crime, is automatically the leader, with placement strategies going to ridiculous and dangerous lengths between the other two prisoners. Based on a Genet play, the cinematography and direction are excellent, giving a good backdrop to some fine performances by all three actors.
