Doing Time (Keimusho no naka)
Yoichi Sai's prison film Doing Time stars Tsutomu Yamazaki as Hanawa, a man serving a sentence in a minimum-security prison. Life in the jail is rigid and organized, eventually leading all of Hanawa's cellmates to abandon their individuality. Hanawa lasts longer than the others, but a stint in solitary confinement leads him to the same emotional and psychological state as the others. Doing Time was screened at the Vancouver Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I found myself far more bereaved than elated with Doing Time. For a drama, I didn't find it very dramatic. For a character study, the characters are so drilled into conforming that there doesn't seem to be any actual characters ..."
