Punishment Park (1971)
This controversial, politically charged thriller from Peter Watkins mines the revolutionary spirit of the 1960s to incendiary effect. A group of antiwar radicals is taken prisoner by the U.S. government and given the option of going to prison or spending three days eluding heavily armed National Guardsmen, who use the detainees as target practice. Patrick Boland, Kent Foreman and Carmen Argenziano star. 88 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English mono; Subtitles: English, French; audio commentary; bonus short "The Forgotten Faces" (1961); filmography; more.
