Notable DVD
Description
In this Oscar-nominated French film from 2009, an Arab youth is sent to a French prison, where he becomes a mafia kingpin. A Prophet won a BAFTA Award for Best Film Not in the English Language, a London Film Critics Award, and a British Independent Film Award for Best Foreign Film. In French with English, Portuguese, and Spanish subtitles.

"Sensational … a pitch-perfect film."—NY Times

"Prophet is a prison film like The Godfather is a gangster film. Meaning this knockout punch of a thriller surpasses its trappings to speak in a universal language about the ways power corrupts the human condition. Newcomer Tahar Rahim is astounding as Malik, 19, an illiterate Arab who begins serving six years by bootlicking César (Niels Arestrup), an imprisoned Corsican crime boss. César tests Mailk by forcing him to kill a fellow Muslim prisoner. Arestrup is altogether remarkable as a Dr. Frankenstein outmaneuvered by the monster he helps to create. Director Jacques Audiard scores a triumph of the highest order with the defiant poetry of his vision. A Prophet is a new crime classic. Five stars."—Rolling Stone
