SILENT SCREAM is a biopic about convicted murderer Larry Winters . However not content with making a standard prison film the director David Hayman throws a massive spanner in the works by making the movie an art house picture with fractured time lines . We know that Winters served in the army , that he murdered a bar man in cold blood and that he`s serving a life sentence but that`s all we really find out as the story keeps jumping around to different times and places . There`s a vague notion that if you treat dangerous criminals with dignity they can be rehabilitated but this point isn`t really hammered home , and unless you`re aware of Scottish culture like the sectarian divide in the West of Scotland you`ll find much of the film confusing . It`s also a rather bleak film not helped by its obvious lack of budget and I can only recommend it if you`re interested in seeing Brit film star Robert Carlyle and well known TV star Julie Graham in cameo roles
