Long Review

Brute Force (1947)

Potentially one of the weaker Jules Dassin Films Noir, Brute Force is still a worthwhile film exploring the dynamics of a prison during the 1940s. The inspiration comes from the rebellion at Alcatraz in 1946 and this film was shocking at the time for the amount of violence it portrayed. 329 more words
