Jacques Audiards masterful A PROPHET stretches the concept of entertainment by taking us into the brutish world of a French prison...Wall Street Journal "[W]ith its lush Alexandre Desplat score, deeply shadowed compositions, and fluid, understated camera movement, A PROPHET is distinctly an Audiard construction."Film Comment 4 stars out of 5 -- "Rahim shifts from wary tough-nut to keen student to aloof enigma in the furrow of a brow. It's a masterful performance..."Empire "[T]he masterful A PROPHET, is an answered prayer for those who believe that revitalizing classic forms with contemporary attitudes makes for the most compelling kind of cinema."Los Angeles Times "Rahim is superb in a lead role that calls for him to be both sympathetic and ruthless.
