Intense, exhilarating an very very brutal! So brutal in fact that we do not advise this for any of our members with families, or, better yet, we would highly recommend watching this after your kids have gone to sleep. You may be asking yourself at this juncture why I would be saying that, since if anything, the kids could gain from this from an educational perspective. And while you are completely correct in your thinking and view point, and ordinarily I would too share that viewpoint. Though, and purely based on the extreme level of realism that this film possesses I would strongly advise against that. That said, lets jump straight into the production. Our long standing viewers know better than anyone that I am crime story aficionado, especially for those that lean towards a documentary/biography production style. I went dilly for Cocaine Cowboys, Pablo Escobar: King of Coke was my all time favorite film of 2007 and I watched Narcos over three times. Hence my exceedingly high levels of excitement for this magical creation by non other than the king of documentaries himself Matthew Cooke. Premised around a somewhat different plot than what you might be thinking. Truth be told, I too expected it to be about surviving within the U.S judicial system, but its not. This nail biting creation is in fact a spotlight shone on the absolute atrocities of the American Prison system. Boasting over 50% of live CCV camera footage and starring the most gigantic names in the industry such as Danny Trejo (Breaking Bad),Jesse Williams (Grey's Anatomy ),Patricia Arquette (Stigmata ) and starring the most exceptional narrator in the business, Susan Sarandon (Avatar) this masterpiece delves deeply into how the Police, jail’s and courts have all the power, and we as citizens are in fact powerless in comparison to them, especially when they get their data wrong and believe you are the criminal. I also love how in addition to the above, the production also furnishes as with hands-on information that is ready to use if ever we are held against our rights or put into a situation where we are totally innocent, yet while the Law is not on our side! Exceptional film, highly educational and enthralling from start to finish!
