Brian Thompson reviews “Shot Caller” for The Young Folks


Director Ric Roman Waugh (SnitchFelon) seems hellbent on making a career out of crime dramas that are every bit as generic as their titles would suggest. His entire cinematic ideology appears to be constructed around the idea that the American prison system creates more criminals than it rehabilitates. As Waugh proves with Shot Caller, the slightest of improvements in a filmography comprised entirely of late night fare for one of the tributary Starz channels, he apparently believes wholeheartedly that once an innocent man is thrown behind bars, all of his moral convictions go right out the window.
