A lot left out of this documentary; pretty one-sided, although the attempt is admirable. One of us disliked it & the other thought it was borderline good.

Important topic; difficult to watch...as any well-made documentary on our prison system should be! I watched this 5 days ago and my mind is still running.

Tough call. Yes, many inmates ought to be reintroduced to general population in the prison due to mental health worsened by isolation, however, it may not be clear or certain who are the psychopaths likely to murder again without hesitation. Bravo to all Correctional Officers having to work in this environment!
