"Caged" is really only worth your time if you want to experience how much solitary confinement sucks. If that is a conclusion you've already come to in life, feel free to skip it.

Caged is most effective when it's focused on Harlow's paranoiac certainty that nobody on the outside of his cell cares for, or even really sees what he's going through.

January 26, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Held together by a bravura lead performance, Caged is a hard-hitting thriller about the fragility of the human condition within such a monstrous method of punishment.
