This movie is not for everyone. "Monster's Ball" can certainly bring to mind the 1970s Marlon Brando classic, "Last Tango in Paris." Desperate, lonely characters engage in sexual acts of violent passion, both as a momentary escape and as their only way of expressing their anguish. The film, set in a small Georgia town, also makes one re-examine feelings on the death penalty....
