    Would have to be the best jai;l movie I have ever come across for realism and a snapshot of the racism and factions that do occur inside the four walls. If your looking for a movie to scare your 15/16 yr old out of choosing a life of crime, this is it!.. Nick Cave gives a harrowing account of a self-mutilator causing unrest in a melting pot of a prison life amongst rapists, child molestors and murderers. A must see for anyone interested in this sort of film. Leave the lights on and the doors locked, they all get out sooner or later....
