The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption ★★★★★

For some reason I disdained this movie for a long time, presumably because I distrusted all those praises. Today, after the fourth or fifth watch of The Shawshank Redemption, I happily concede, that it fully deserves the praises. In it's own style it is intense but also unobstrusive and that is a rare combination. Nevertheless, I cannot say that it would be the overall best film of all times. It certainly must be the best prison drama.
