Well done documentary
4 April 2018 | by jodyfranzSee all my reviews

A look at how much better the rehabilitation system could be. This was a look behind the scenes of how Halden prison does things vs how Attica does things. Totally opposite points of view shown. It was very interesting to watch and the pacing, narration and camera style were all pretty well done. I enjoyed this movies and would recommend it to anyone wanting to see how things could potentially be. Although it was kind of sad to see how much work and how hard it would be to change the system currently in place.
