Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Total Film

    With largely improvised dialogue and a cast including genuine ex-offenders, Chapiron captures a powerful stench of authenticity.

  • 63

    Slant Magazine Joseph Jon Lanthier

    The plot willfully denies our satisfaction, often at the risk of compromising its own structural integrity.

  • 60

    The Guardian Xan Brooks

    Perhaps this tells us nothing new about life on the inside in the US (there are rapes, riots and suicides), but it at least handles its brief with pace and precision.
