This is an extraordinary documentary. I as astounded to see what inhumane conditions those prisoners confined to solitary must endure. It really is akin to torture to keep a person in a 6x9' cell for literally DECADES. The relationship that develops between the artist and prisoner is deeply touching and carries the film. I highly recommend this movie.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.
