Birdman of Alcatraz
Directed by John Frankenheimer. With Burt Lancaster, Karl Malden, Thelma Ritter.
This is a beautiful movie! It is about a young man who develops a friendship with birds while spending 45 years in solitary confinement. (Also interesting because one can see how different solitary confinement used to be). It is based on a true story.
The movie is famous, yes. But this is one of the good greats! Worth seeing. Quiet but touching. I would not say it is an especially deep movie but it is just so much better than what
It is historically beautiful both as a story and as a movie.
