Picks and Pans Review: Prison Stories: Women on the Inside

UPDATED 01/28/1991 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 01/28/1991 at 01:00 AM EST

HBO (Sat., Jan. 26, 10 P.M. ET)


This raw but flawed dramatic special, starring Rachel (Total Recall) Ticotin, Lolita (Blaze) Davidovich and Rae Dawn Chong, is made up of three vignettes—two about mothers and one about a mother-to-be behind bars.

The stories, the characters and the language all carry a hard edge, but their half-hour lengths make the segments seem abrupt and implausible.
