This is the best prison movie ever made. Doesn't seem like something Stephen King would write, but I loved the short story too.
Strange that my two favorite movies are about men in prison…Paul Newman was such a bad-ass in this movie.
I love almost all of Wes Anderson's movies, but this one is his absolute best. Gene Hackman is hilarious: "I'm not talking about dance lessons. I'm talking about putting a brick through the other guy's windshield."
This is such a heartbreaking story, and I think it's the best role Mickey Rourke ever delivered. I also really love the song Bruce Springsteen wrote for the soundtrack.
Jack Black is one of the funniest human beings on the planet—and he loses nothing in cartoon form.
