This movie is very cleverly done, phenomenal dialogs and fantastic acting make this film a real masterpiece. It's about soul of a young man that has been lost in Nazi ideology and Jewish lawyer who will rise above the hate and try to help him. After just one viewing you will not see the true intentions of some sentences, but in the end it will all make sense...I read somewhere that this film should be shown in schools and I think that's a really good idea because it carries the message that is absolutely correct and can affect young people not to go the wrong path. Here, you will not find expensive movie effects but you will see the true human emotions...

Powerful, moving... I am so VERY impressed and humbled. From what I saw on your first cut into what I watched tonight, this movie which forced my attention time and again back to watch and refocus on the screen, had such a wonderful progressive movement from that movie into this one.
I've jotted down thoughts as I was watching it... most all of these notes are therefore in sequential order but just quick thoughts: Great grab at the beginning, one thinks it's an action movie. The slow effects- spot on- good! Entering into the cell first time -- the grid work shadowing -- wonderful Overall: Music -- oboe, cello, violin, piano....touches a persons heart strings.
Sound effects... really hammer home many things; hard, cold, etc. of the prison environment.
The first St. Viatteur scene with Muslim and orthodox Jew was good transition.
Really well cut re: close in and full shots... especially first meeting and last (e.g., chair breaking) scene. Yes, the tub scene worked with Danial, finally I understood what he was thinking and then he focused on the "Victim Impact Statement".
Showing the passing of time... worked well... good angles of the prison- stark, cold.
Interior prison scenes: really worked, bars, blocks, sun off the wall.
It was very clear at the beginning... the dialog which meant to convey 'try me for me, not for what I believe', etc.
Danny and mike "what happened with you today" worked great... it wasn't necessary to know what and why.... leaves the minutiae up to the audience... yet, the frustration is clearly seen... based on prior scenes and what was going on in that one.
The window-washing scene... so clearly showed Danny's frustration at so many things but then framed against a "random act of kindness"
Very clearly you were able to capture the home and work responses to his work on this case with very little air time.
The title grew on me... as it's significance was played up during the course of the movie. ALL scenes carried a very nice juxtapositions between Dan/mike Great scenes to close with... jail vs. free ... yet both were in their own prisons.
And the end provided hope for them and for us. Wonderful Work.
Mike Downey (Andrew Walker) is a white supremacist skinhead. He is arrested for beating up an immigrant as a hate crime. Liberal Jew Danny Dunkelman (David Strathairn) is assigned as his defense lawyer. Mike is a young angry man. Danny is confronted by family and friends. Both struggle to come to terms with their beliefs.
This is mostly a two person play. Strathairn is a class act and his greatness is expected. Andrew Walker is equally amazing. As for the play, some parts of it is poignant while other parts feel overwrought. It's walking on a knife's edge. The movie has both types of moments. It can be powerful one moment and fake the next. It's definitely pushing its agenda very hard and it can feel preachy. Some of it feel fake and rubs me the wrong way.
