The Keeper

The Keeper

Director: Joe Brewster
Year: 1996

A deft, often chilling look at the unexploded dynamite of guard/prisoner relations, The Keeper is a searing psychological drama stunningly acted by Giancarlo Esposito (Do the Right Thing, Fresh, Malcolm X), African superstar Isaach De Bankole (Night on Earth, Chocolat) and Regina Taylor (I'll Fly Away, A Family Thing). Like the best work of Charles Burnett and Spike Lee, Joe Brewster's film looks beyond the stylish mayhem of "hood" cinema.
