Hard cell: Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan in The Green Mile.

The Green Mile is a loud and ghastly movie to sit through and not short on gratuitous hideousness, but Darabont has also done his best to baste it with humanity and sweetness. For every kicked scrotum or broken finger, there's a field of fireflies or some warm cornbread. He's continually poised with his spoonful of sugar, but the medicine he forces upon us is perhaps a little bit too severe to get down.
