I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang

I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang ★★★★½

What a brilliant, heartbreaking film. I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang shows how horrific and inhumane chain gangs are, and how much it can destroy a person. The film's success is partly due to the writing and direction, but I would say most of it is due to Paul Muni's amazing performance. His character, James Allen, needed a layered and deeply emotional performance in order to work and Muni does it perfectly.

I clearly like the film a lot, and since watching I truly can't stop thinking about it.
