It's not a survivors guide
27 June 2018 | by fpuwasabadpresidentSee all my reviews

The movie wasn't that bad but it wasn't a survivors guide to prison at all. I feel like someone about to go to prison somewhere is going to watch this and be like "thanks for the stats but I learned jack about how to survive in prison". I mean the documentary brings up some good points, if a bit one sided.

You might not feel the same way but I hate the fact that celebrities who never went to prison or knew anything about anything would comment throughout the film. Why are they here? They know nothing, they've never been to prison.

If you want some good points for your college paper it's good (trust me that's what I used this film for), if you want to survive prison find something else.
