Hmm, well I took a step back in time and am literally struggling at times to watch this masterpiece to completion--this one is nearly 50 years old and so brutal and harsh at times that I have to stop it and come back to it later. But it is amazing, truly fascinating at times.

Blood looks fake, though, but those scenes are not the worst, believe me. Anyone else see this?--the original, not the remake.


Edit: Just finished it. No words.
Glad you made it through to the end of this tale of the human spirit vs unrelenting crushing oppression.

Great movie with some outstanding performances from Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman.

If you liked this plat you might also like Midnight Cowboy another grim "buddy" movie with top performances and story line ?

Regards Eck:)

It was...difficult. I won't get into how I came to find this movie and actually become enthralled by it. Sometimes, it's amazing what you find by taking a small detour from your everyday life, right?

I'm actually not a fan of "buddy" movies, but I'll give Midnight Cowboy a look-see. MS Store has it available as well--it's even older than Papillon. Thanks!

And a choo-choo story...
It seems more harrowing each time I watch it.
