'Life' as in the slammer, not that of the country squire!
23 November 2001 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

You wanna depress yourself stupid? here's the flick for you then!

Following Johnston's highly acclaimed documentary ETERNITY, comes his feature film debut..and what a downer! Not so much in professionalism and direction, but in choice of subject matter and dubious entertainment factor.

Based on John Brumpton's own play of the same name, LIFE is an exploration of working-class culture within the confines of a male prison. A dismal collection of HIV-positive men, find themselves well on the outer periphery within the system's hierarchial pecking-order.

If dark friendships and bleak conventions are your idea of a good time, you're going to be in your element watching this. Thanks, but WE'LL take a rain-check!
