    Another really good prison flick is a french one called Un Prophete. It is about a moslem kid who gets made the servant boy by boss of powerful Corsican mob boss on the inside. Is about how he finally sticks up for himself, and sets himself up for life once he gets out.

    Man, holy shit.

    That sounds like an interesting, but also probably shitty, experience.

    If I went to the kind of prison where I'd have to be involved in all of that kind of shit just to survive, I really think I'd probably prefer to just be in solitary confinement. At least that way I can just do my thing without being fucked with.

    No but I had one planted on the underside of my bunk and discovered it the day before a shake down, which is when the guards come in, strip everyone naked and destroy everything looking for contraband. Its a common thing in jail that if someone wants to give you another case and keep you in jail they can plant a weapon in your things. That's a felony and then you get more time.

    Yea, its a pretty wild experience. I saw crazy shit while locked up. We were locked in what was called a pod, 48 men to a pod, always 16 white, 16 black, and 16 hispanic so that the numbers are even if the shit hits the fan. We had a completely concrete yard connected to the pod and at nigh around midnight a certain group of guards would come in to the pod and select guys, take them out on the yard, wrap their hands in towles and make them fight. They had their fun their because there was no surveillance cameras, at least not at night. The guards were as criminal as the inmates, I assure you.

    They introduce some cool characters, and sub plots, but did not follow through on them. They ended too quickly. This should have been at least two movies.

    First Movie is how he adjusts to prison life, and how he adjust to life on outside.

    Second movie is how he finally resolves everything.

    Wow, loved this. This was everything I wanted Brawl In Cell Block 99 to be. And what a bonus, Holt McCallany from Mindhunter is great in this. Lots of great side performances, and a respectable dive out of the comfort zone for Jaime Lannister. Great flick.

    I just realized the main character is Jaime Lanister lol. I knew I saw him from somewhere when I was watching the movie. I couldn't put my finger on it. He looks different without a sword

    Yeah this needs to be fixed. You cant give someone more time for basically trying to survive in a mad house. A lot of policies need to be fixed in regards to our criminal justice system. I get angry just thinking about it.

    What state did you serve?

    Still better than average
