Comments:  "A Prophet" - Jacques Audiard 2008.  Malik, a 19-year-old French-Arab, enters prison as an uneducated naif and is thrust into rigidly defined social system rife with corruption, cronyism, and racism.  Director Audiard's intricate study of the bloody rules and rituals behind bars never once glorifies the shocking violence that becomes a rite of passage for Malik.
