Where's My Mr. Goodbar?

Penitentiary (1979)
Dir - Jamaa Fanaka
Weird Wednesday

From the man who brought us Welcome Home Bother Charles, comes the first in the trilogy of films about boxing in the big house. A few great fight scenes, but there is a bit of odd editing and some out-of-place feeling fourth wall breaking. If nothing else I now have to watch the other two films, the sequel has Mr. T and Ernie Hudson, and I want to eat a(nother) Mr. Goodbar.
