When I first saw Training Day in the theater I was disappointed, but it's really growing on me. I like Denzel Washington's character.
And Animal Factory - well, I just have this weird fascination with prison movies. Shawshank Redemption is one of my all-time favorites. But, strangely, I never really got into Oz. Plus I like Willem DaFoe's character in Animal Factory. Sort of reminds me of what I imagine G Gordon Liddy being like in prison. A prisoner, but smart enough to be running the place.
