Terminal Island (aka Knuckle-Men) (1973) by Stephanie Rothman 88 min. Color 35mm
Terminal Island is as hard-hitting a prison picture as has ever been made. In a science-fictional future, an island is conscripted as the ultimate maximum security prison: once sentenced, male or female, you are left to fend for your life on the terrain of the lawless. Ena Hartman plays a new young black convict dumped on the beach, and shown the ropes by Phyllis Davis and Tom Selleck. Can she team up with fellow freedom-minded types to stick a wrench into the criminal patriarchal hegemony? Terminal Island is Utopia rewritten by J.G. Ballard.
