Life Inside Angola Prison
1998, 100 min
By Jonathan Stack and Liz Garbus
A straight-on view of the legendary lifer's prison on an old slave plantation in Louisiana, where few leave alive. It's more honest than the TV fictional show OZ in that here some lifers find truth and happiness inside. Depicts the hell inside (I'll be good, I promise) and of course stirs up outrage (expected) but what I find worth recommending is the inspiration it plants as you see humans blossom in the most inhumane place.
