Film Review: Papillon


Well written and paced, great performances from Charlie Hunnan and the always excellent Rami Malek.

There is some debate about the truth of this story (it was originally penned as a true story, but doubt has been cast on it in subsequent years), but that doesn’t impact the film at all.

It’s understandably bleak, but I enjoyed this film.

A dark 8.0/10.0
