Malevolence (1999) Poster

A young prisoner tells his story to an FBI agent. How unjust judicial system, systematic abuse inside and political corruption and machinations outside turn someone who killed in defense into a hardened criminal.

| Weird, Unpleasant and Wicked Story of Injustice, Racism, Politics and Revenge
In a prison in Georgia in the 60's, the prisoner Billy Bob Jones (as Joe Cortese) tells his story since he was ten years old to the FBI agent Hannah (Belle Avery). Billy was unfairly sent to a reformatory after stabbing on the back the boy friend of his sister, who was rapping her. When he was twenty-one years old, he was going to be released, but a black guard tries to rape him and he kills the man, being sent to prison. He becomes friend of a thief, who teach him how to rob banks and brings him to the breasts of KKK. He is arrested again, and he is used for political purpose in a nasty plot. "Malevolence" is a weird, unpleasant and wicked story of injustice, racism, politics and revenge. It is not a bad movie, but the miserable life of the character of Billy Bob Jones is so unfair, that in the end it is a very disagreeable and quite offensive movie. The actress and director Belle Avery performs a bizarre character, and her voice recalls Jodie Foster's timbre. This film is recommended for specific audiences only. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Maldade" ("Wicked")
