Prison Break

The start of Prison Break's third season is exactly right: a crowd of gnarly, noisy men, surrounded by prison walls and doused by rain.

Black Hawk Down (2001)

An action movie dressed up like an art film, 'Black Hawk Down' is not about betrayal or anger, but heroism and patriotic fervor.
