Movie Review: The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption is as much about prisons as it is the human condition. For as beautiful and thought provoking as the movie is, there’s some real grime caked on top of it. It’ll give you a taste of what goes on in the minds of these characters, but it won’t hold your hand or coddle you. You’ll have to deal with the facts as they hand them to you, for better and for much worse.… Read More Movie Review: The Shawshank Redemption
