I spent a couple of hours this afternoon at www.movietvonline.com watching the recently released film "Felon", which is essentially about a man (Stephen Dorff) who is convicted for killing a burgular to his home. In the state prison he learns to survive doing time with help from his cell mate (Val Kilmer).
First of all this is a fresh inside perspective on how prison not only affects Dorff's character but how the experience affects family (spouses, children and parents). Dorff does an adequate job. The film gives added glimpses into the warped mind set of prison guards and the judicial system overall, with saddened truth on how easily the US judicial system can be manipulated to serve the agenda of those in authority. Furthermore the film is genuinely raw in its use of violence and display of twisted penal politics facing prisoners.
Another wonderful gem of this film is the performance by Kilmer as the verteran prisoner. His role is performed powerfully with an overwhelming sense of vulnerability and restraint.
I watched this movie online via Veoh. The sound and video quality was as clear and vividly rich as if watching a DVD on television. It is a special joy watching Veoh movies in full screen without loss of picture or sound integrity. The movie may be seen in four parts. The link is provided below and you are encouraged to see it.
