I've been in prison for 18 years, and I have a friend who is in prison. I also have a friend who is in prison. I have seen the movie twice. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn more about the realities of the prison system. This movie is not for everyone, but it is well worth the time to watch. If you are not interested in prison, then this movie is not for you. I recommend it to everyone.

This is a very good documentary about the prison system and the people behind it. I saw it on HBO. I thought it was interesting and informative. It's not an exhaustive history of prison reform. But it does go into a lot of detail about the conditions that are there and what they do. It's also interesting to hear about the stories of the people who are still there, the people who were already there, and the people who were given a choice and didn't make it. It's interesting to hear about the people who got out, and the people who didn't. It's also interesting to hear about how some people have changed and others have not. It's a very interesting documentary.

I saw this movie at a screening in L.A. last night. I was surprised to find out how this movie could be so effective and inspiring. It was great to see how the survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing were treated by the media and the authorities. I believe that this film is a great way to introduce people to the survivors and to show how they were treated by the media and the authorities. It shows that you do not have to be a professional to understand the horrors of the Oklahoma City bombing. It is definitely a must-see!

This film is for those who have seen or are considering seeing "The Shawshank Redemption." I found it to be a really interesting study on what happens to a person after they have spent time in prison, and how they manage to find a way to make it through life. The documentary follows a group of men and women who have spent time in prison, and try to come to terms with their experience. The film does a good job of showing the experiences of the men and women, and also the mistakes they made in their lives. I really liked the way the film showed the different types of people that the inmates and guards had been. One of the things that was interesting about the film is the way that the men and women were told what their lives would be like, and then how they were able to change their lives. I also really liked the way that the film showed the difference between the people who went to prison, and the people who were incarcerated. Overall, I thought that the film was really interesting, and I would definitely recommend watching this film.

This is a very important documentary that I highly recommend. The documentary shows how prisons are run and how the guards are treated. They also discuss the medical and psychological problems that prisoners have. The prisoners are also given a brief history of their imprisonment. The film also shows how the prison guards treat the prisoners. The guards are also given some insight on the treatment of prisoners. This is a very important documentary that I highly recommend.

This is the first documentary I've seen that was so well-done and so true to life. It's a great movie and one that everyone should see. I am so glad that this film was made. I think that the majority of the population that watches this film will be able to relate to the characters and the situations they were in. This is a great film and I can't wait to see it again. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn more about the world of prison and how it is run. I think that everyone should see this film.

If you have ever been in prison, you will recognize a lot of things about the prison system. If you have never been in prison, you will recognize a lot of things about the prison system. This is a movie that will appeal to the people who were in prison for a long time and know more about the prison system than those who were in prison for a short time. This movie is great to see if you are someone who is interested in the prison system. If you are someone who is interested in the prison system, this is a movie for you.

This documentary was great. It has a very good balance of documentary footage and interviews from former prisoners. It doesn't use narration and it shows the prisoners speaking to each other. I think it is very important to know what went on in prison before and during the war. I would recommend it to anyone.

The survivors of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing watch a video about the bombing and see what happened that day. It is an amazing film and the story is just amazing. The survivors are all very different and most of them were involved in the bombing. This film will make you want to know more about the bombing. If you are interested in the Oklahoma City bombing, this is a must see.

This film is a brilliant exploration of how one's family and friends impact one's life and the impact prison has on a person's life. It is a very important and very hard topic to discuss and talk about. The film takes a good look at the reasons why prison is a bad thing and it's effects on a person and his/her family. The film also takes a look at how inmates can have a positive impact on the community and how they can be part of a community that isn't violent and gets along. It's a great film that shows the "survivors" side of the prison experience and how hard it is to survive in prison. It's a film that shows that even though you're incarcerated, you're still a human being and you can have a positive impact on the world. This film is very emotional and very powerful and it's an excellent film.

I had the privilege of attending the screening of this documentary at the Sundance Film Festival. The film is a very well-crafted documentary, which tells the story of the survivors of the 1976 Summer of Love in Berlin. The film starts with the testimonies of three people who survived the event: the Jewish women who lost their children and husbands, the elderly women who lost their homes and the men who lost their families. The film then takes a look at the day-to-day lives of the survivors, the people who tried to protect them, and the people who tried to tear them apart. The film is extremely well-made, with a lot of great photography. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in the Berlin Summer of Love. It is a very well-made documentary, and it is worth watching.

I'm a survivor of rape and the movie has touched me deeply. I watched this movie with my husband and I cried for the first time in a long time. I feel like I can relate to this movie and I can see how it is being made. It is such a powerful movie and I would recommend this movie to anyone who is in the same situation. I don't think there is anyone that is not going to be touched by this movie. It is a must see.

I was lucky enough to see this documentary at the Sundance Film Festival. The movie is great. It is a look at what it's like to be incarcerated, how it feels to be a prisoner, and how the world treats inmates. It is very well done. The acting is superb. The director, Adam Kosar, did a great job of directing and editing. He got everything just right. He had a great idea for the movie. I hope he gets some recognition for it. If you are going to see this movie, see it in a theater. It is a great movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know what it's like to be in prison. This is a must see movie.

I have watched a lot of documentaries about prisons and prisons in general. This one was very informative and a must see for anyone interested in prison or about prisons. It was very well done and the actors were very well chosen and portraying their characters with passion. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in prison or about prisons or if you just want to learn more about prison life. It is an interesting and informative documentary that has an interesting and very well thought out story behind it.

I was a survivor of the South Pacific, but I am not a survivor of the Holocaust. I was born in 1945, and have lived in the U.S. since then. I can say with confidence that the Holocaust was a horrific crime against humanity, and this film provides a compelling history lesson about the horror. The film is well-crafted, and the dialogue is clear and precise. I believe that this film should be a model for other film makers to follow.

I can't believe I just saw this. It was great. I am amazed that a lot of people didn't find it to be such a great documentary. I loved it. I thought it was very well done, and it certainly put a lot of the facts into perspective for me. The pictures were beautiful and they told a great story. It is a great way to get to know the people that were in the prison system, and I hope it will be on TV a lot more in the future. I am glad it was on so I can see it again.

I had the pleasure of watching this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it won the audience award. I don't think it's a very good movie, but I don't think it's a bad movie either. The first half of the movie is very funny. I actually laughed a lot at the scenes that the film makers tried to show us. I was also a bit surprised at how many people in the audience were laughing, especially the black people. I was a little disappointed by the end of the movie, because it had a lot of important issues to deal with, but I think the film makers didn't get the point of it. I think a lot of the people who saw it didn't get it either. I thought the acting was pretty good and I was pretty impressed with the director. I don't think he's a very good director, but he's not a very bad one either. He did a good job with what he had to work with. I thought that the movie was very clever and thought provoking, but it didn't really have much of a point. It was more of a comedy, and a very good one at that. If you're going to watch this movie, I recommend that you watch it in English, because the movie was shot in English. If you don't speak English, you probably won't understand the movie. I think the movie was a little disappointing, but I think that it is worth seeing.

I have watched this documentary several times and I will continue to watch it, and I will always remember it for the amazing stories and how they were brought to the world. I was lucky enough to be a part of the crew and I would like to thank all of you who were there for this documentary. I was fortunate enough to meet the person who played the father and he was just amazing. I was fortunate enough to meet the other survivors of the film and they were just as amazing. I can't wait to see the rest of the documentary. I also want to thank the film makers for the incredible work that they did. I hope they can get the funding to make more documentaries like this one. I have no doubt that they will be able to create a better film in the future and it would be great to see this documentary go on for as long as it did. I would like to thank all of you who have been there, you have been there and you have made a difference in the world. Thank you.

My boyfriend and I were talking about this documentary and I asked him if I could see it. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The documentary is well done, well researched and well done. It is not a "black and white" film. I can not remember the last time I watched a documentary that was so unbiased and so objective. It is a great film. The only thing I would have liked to see is more "footage" of the actual prison. That is the only thing that I would have changed. The other thing I would have changed was the music, it is good, but I would have like to see more songs and more music videos. I would have liked to see a little bit more of the actual prison experience. Overall, I was very impressed and was very happy with the film. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about what the "real" prison experience is like.

The survivors of the fire at the Exeter Psychiatric Hospital were all interviewed in the documentary, "Survivors Guide to Prison", and the best of them are interviewed in this film. The documentary shows them, their stories and the impact of the fire. One of the survivors, Robert, describes what the patients and staff had to go through, and how hard it was to deal with the aftermath. The interviewees were also interviewed before the film, and then after the film. The film is well worth watching and it will make you think about what you have seen. The survivors have written a book, "Exeter: A Great Time, a Great Place", and they have also produced a special edition DVD with the special features. I recommend this documentary.

I was disappointed in the book, which was more of a biography of her life and her time in prison. The movie is just a summary of her life. The movie gives a lot of information about the prison and the women who were there. I enjoyed the movie, but it is a very boring movie.

My wife and I were invited to a screening of this documentary by an acquaintance who is a former inmate of the same facility. I was skeptical about the subject matter, but he seemed to have a good sense of humor about it. I thought the film was extremely well done. I agree that the details of the prison system are not necessarily relevant to our current circumstances. However, as a former inmate myself, I found the film to be informative and entertaining. I found it to be well done. I highly recommend this film to anyone who is interested in prisons or prison systems.

A first-person account from a first-time inmate of the first-person account of an inmate of the federal prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. The film follows the story of Charles Sims, a 20-year-old college student who is incarcerated for a crime he did not commit. His story is told in a first-person perspective through a combination of interviews and hand-held camera shots. It is quite an experience to watch and hear this story unfold. The film was made in collaboration with the National Institute of Corrections and the director of the film is the director of the National Institute of Corrections. The film is narrated by William H. Macy, and it is available in two versions. One version is a standard narration, the other is a second-person narration. The director's comments and interviews are from the second-person version. The second-person narration is very well done and enhances the story. The director's comments are in the first-person version. I really enjoyed this film, and it was a very moving experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in a film about the first-person perspective of a first-time inmate.

Well done to all the survivors. These brave souls fought for their lives, their families, and their humanity in the harshest of conditions. I feel privileged to have seen this film and was touched by the courage of these people. I hope that someday this film will be released on DVD and I hope that someone will be able to find the resources to make it happen.

I was born in the 70's and this movie is really hard to watch. It is a real story of a man who made a mistake and he was punished for it. I'm sure many people are not happy with this movie but I think it is very important to show people that you can change your life and get out of prison. I think this movie will change the way people see the prison system. I don't think people will ever forget the man who was punished. I think this movie will be a great help to people who want to change their lives and not to be a victim of the system.

I first saw this documentary on HBO back in 1997. I was already a huge fan of Howard Zinn and had been following his work for years. I had never heard of this documentary until I watched it. I was amazed at how much I had learned from this documentary. The DVD was a gift from a friend and I was amazed at the depth of the research done. I was so happy to learn that the same information was available in English and Spanish. I have been reading Zinn's work ever since and now I have it available in Spanish. The DVD is a must-have for anyone interested in reading the book or watching the movie.

The film is a truly remarkable insight into the world of the prison system, and what life is like for the prisoners who are released from it. The documentary was shot over a period of two years, with the help of many of the inmates themselves. This film is not only about the horrific effects of incarceration, but also about the people who are forced to live with it. The film has the look of a documentary, but it is not one. It is a beautiful piece of work. I highly recommend this film. The film is a true work of art, and one that should be seen by everyone.
