compare this to prison shows on cable nowadays
14 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

it's a lot more powerful for its dispassionate approach, the reviews written here are excellent, not much more to add. I guess this film is available online from bootleg sources that sell a really good print of it on DVD quite cheaply, but you won't find it anywhere else. I'm sure I've seen some of NBs other films, I don't recall him as an "onscreen provocateur" in the Aileen Wouranous (sic) film... But this movie as someone has said, shows the great power of using pure cinema without a michael moore personality getting doing schtick which the world is all carried away with now to the detriment of the documentary form for sure.
