A different kind of prison flick
12 July 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"The Visit" tells the story of a young convicted rapist and AIDS victim (Harper) in prison, the visits he receives from family and friends which resurrect old issues, and his final quest for resolution and purpose. On the upside "The Visit" is a solid drama which is short on entertainment and long on meaning, interspersed with surreal dream-like sequences, backed with a plaintive jazz score, cloaked in very unprison-like atmospherics, offers excellent performances, and avoids cliches and stereotypes. However, the film's theatrical presentation and somewhat vague purpose may limit audience appeal to more serious minded film goers and fans of the players. (B)
