Address Comments To:
CONVICTS presents the bad news of the Book of Ecclesiastes: earthly pursuits are vanity, whether you are king of Israel or a plantation owner. Robert Duvall's portrayal of a demented alcoholic who spouts endless profanities is excruciatingly accurate and may warrant an Academy Award. Cast performances are credible, as is the moody cinematography. Unfortunately, the overall effect is destroyed by a virtual absence of plot, which produces more boredom than insight.
