Best Prison Movies

Recommended Posts

Shawshank is one of those movies (along with the first 2 Godfathers and Usual Suspects) that no matter what point I come across it on TV I gotta watch it to the end.

I like the Green Mile and Cool Hand Luke and the Shawshank Redemption.

 

+1 on those Californiaman. I also liked "Dead Man Walking"

These would be my picks. IMO Shawshank is one of the best movies of any genre ever. And Luke! My goodness, what a movie. You could say it about some of my posts....."What we have here...is a failure...to communicate" My hell, what a line. #-o

Cool Hand Luke.

 

I don't know if this is considered a prison movie, but there was this movie I remember watching around the mid 80s called Runaway Train. It had Eric Roberts and Jon Voight.

Most of my favorite's' date=' of the genre have been previously mentioned,

but I liked "Birdman of Alcatraz," with Burt Lancaster, too.

Man, you got that one right, I forgot about that one. Lancaster was such a great actor, and he really did a great job in that movie.
