Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "R" is not about justice or redemption. You couldn't even call it a protest film about prison conditions, but it is very well made and persuasively acted.
Fresh: The helmers employ claustrophobic closeups to mirror the experience of an inmate arriving at the harsh institution and finding his options limited by more than just locked doors.
Fresh: Directors-screenwriters Lindholm and Noer are careful not to let the audience know more than their protagonist does, keeping them in the nerve-wrecking state of uncertainty and fear.
Fresh: Who knows better about prison life than someone who has experienced it firsthand?
I'm a big fan of stop making sense and wasn't expecting that much to be honest, but this was really awesome!
Saw this concert live and didn't know what to expect, but love the backstage footage and perspectives from so many of the people who were part of the performance.
