| Dead Man Out is a subtle and captivating film.
Dead Man Out is a subtle and captivating film. I happened upon it one night while on a rode trip and was quietly riveted until the final credits. This was at least five years ago and I still feel the intensity of the relationship between the Blades character and the Glover character. For me it was emotionally honest without any sentimentality. Ruben Blades was amazing, I had never seen his acting before this movie. The death row, capital punishment discussions are fraught with opinion, which the film reflects. The transformative nature of the relationship between Glover, the attorney and Blades, the convicted takes the issue and the watcher into the realm of redemption and personal responsibility if they care to go.
