DVD of the Week: A Prophet

This week’s DVD of the Week is a film from earlier this year:  A Prophet (Un Prophete).  It is the story of a young French-Arab from his first terrifying day in prison to his release.  Once he starts to adjust to his role in the prison as the toady of a Corsican crime boss, no one else in the movie knows what he is really thinking.  It evokes the DeNiro scenes in The Godfather: Part II, except set with gritty realism in contemporary France. Nominated for the Best Foreign Language Oscar.  One of my Best Movies of 2010 – So Far and pretty high on my list of 10 Best Prison Movies.
