Summary

Dr. Ethan Powell (Anthony Hopkins) is a primatologist brought back from the jungles of Rwanda as a murderer of park wardens, and faces the death sentence. Theo Caulder (Cuba Gooding Jr), a prison psychologist, enters Dr. Powell's penitentiary to spend time with him and to try to uncover his mysteries. Beyond the prison walls, Theo Caulder probes the walls of Dr. Powell, and is surprised at what he finds there.

 

Loren’s Review

A movie that exposes “the game” we all play and deals with the illusion of control.  This film is loaded with fantastic lines.  Another great Anthony Hopkins role that includes Donald Sutherland as Caulder's mentor.
