Soon they’ll be transported, as will you, to the fifth dimension. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.

Grab your rock hammer because we’re going to prison! We meander off the beaten path a few times to indulge in some digressions, but revisiting this award-winner film was a treat, and we bet you three cigarettes and a pin-up poster that you’ll enjoy it, too. Or are we being obtuse?
