I cannot give this Black-cult classic a standard review?

Penitentary When this movie premiered in 1979 it was a sellout at our local $1 Theater in Dallas called the Texas (where Lee Harvey Oswald was caught).It played their several weeks and also at another local Hangout called the Aquarius. I am not sure why it was so popular,but I think it was because it was the Rawest,grittiest,downright Adult movie to deal with the consequences of committing a crime against others. This is a GrindHouse Original.Weak story line,but common. Poor cinematography ,but effective. Prison is not pleasant and this film was not pleasant. Ultra violent ,yet comical…? Love scenes in the Men’s room are borderline Porn…I saw the premiere with my grandparents! And oh get anally raped in Prison (see Boondocks episode) This movie was so…So Baad …that we Loved it. Ps…I have not seen this movie in 22years. So my opinion could change if I see it again…!
