Frederick Wiseman, 1967) AUD. A-8:15 only
"A calm, cool, and ultimately horrifying look at conditions in
a state prison for the criminally insane. It is a small black-and-
white picture, laconie abrasive, occasionally awkward and always
compelling. Its content dictates its style, which is that of
honest, thoroughly committed cinema reportage. The result is
an extraordinarily candid picture of a modern Bedlam, where
the horrors are compposed of indifference and patronizing
concern."-Vincent Canby, The New ork Times.
