This movie had potential but fails in its execution. The director, is obviously an amateur with little to no actual skill, it most closely resembles a film school project at a community college. Scenes are out of focus, filters are needlessly placed over scenes, scenes are edited poorly causing scenes to be rendered incoherent, overall this film is a complete mess. Another issue that bothered me was the useless addition of second rate hip hop music which had no place in any of the scenes, robbing the scenes of any(poorly) attempted sentiment.
The structure of this documentary is also a hopeless mess, story lines begin then end abruptly, only to jump to another inmate where the cycle will begin again. The only bright stop was the participation of Danny Trejo, who, I am sure would not have participated in this project had he known how awful it came out. While I do not blame the crew for this mess, I do wish the director would attend some film making classes, his ineptitude shines brightly.
