Movie Review: A Prayer Before Dawn
Based on the book, based on the real life events of Billy Moore this is movie is an honest depiction of what it's like in a Thai Prison. This movie was a tough watch but I'm sure the real experience was even more horrifying.
If you've seen American History X you'll have an idea what you're in store for with this movie.
The cinematography in the movie does a good job of showing Billy's fucked up state of mind in certain scenes by use of motion blurring.
I hear Turkish prisons are nightmarish but this film does a phenomenal job of making Thai prisons a place I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy! This is not an easy film to watch but worthwhile if for no other reason than to show where drugs can end you up.
I think this movie would benefit some parents with bad ass kids that think they know it all.
