Hunger Movie Doesn't Satisfy Mine
The revelation that they were roughly forced to submit to baths and hair cuts may horrify Cannes Film Festival judges, who are still traumatized over George Bush pouring water down uncooperatives' noses. However, as a world traveler, I long ago hardened my heart to the screams of dirty, stubborn toddlers being waterboarded in metal tubs by their tired, fascist mothers. I just can't muster shock and awe over these allegations. Still, being half-Irish myself, I do find denying prisoners whisky a cruel and unusual punishment - like this film.
