Rick D’s review published on Letterboxd:
Steve McQueen is Papillon, who along with Dustin Hoffman are serving time on Devil's Island aka: Living Hell.
Not alot happens in this other than seeing how brutal the French penal system was during this time. McQueen is excellent as is Hoffman.
Screw rehab, once you are make it to Devil's Island you never leave it which challenges Steve McQueen to prove wrong.
