[5.50/10] Clemency (2019)

Clemency (2019)

Quick Review: Yes, Alfre Woodard delivers a truly commanding, albeit reserved performance, portraying a character that's equally as tough on the outside as it's fragile within, but the film's quietly grim tone, heavy atmosphere, and extremely difficult subject matter turn "Clemency" into an excruciating experience through the real-life horror of death row, and the mental consequences it leaves on prison wardens as part of their everyday job, that's way too morbid and depressing to bare.

There are heavy movies I have to be in the right mood for. Sounds like there is no mood for that one.

No, there isn't. There wasn't a single light moment in this one.
