A Prophet

A Prophet ★★★½

ELECTRIC first hour, specifically the scene in 'Reyeb's' cell which offers up some unshakeable tension.

It's slightly diminishing returns for me from there, but likely just because the whole 'rise of an aspiring crime lord' sub-genre has never really done it for me i.e. Godfather, Scarface. The pacing gets slow at parts and i'm not sure it justifies its runtime.

I was going to claim this would be the least desirable movie prison to be incarcerated in, however, one whole baguette! each day! move over Shawshank.
