Miguel Pinero's slice-of-prison-life stage play gets slick and conscientious treatment from director Robert M. Young. Full Review

New York Times
Bruce Davison stars in this brutal prison drama as Clark Davis, a white man convicted of molesting who is sent to "The Tombs", otherwise known as the Manhattan House of Detention. Infamous for its brutal and ruthless detainees, Davis immediately finds that he is a marked man once inside. Featuring a cast of mostly non-professionals, SHORT EYES is a blistering look at life in one of New York's most dangerous prisons.
