  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
If you were a high school drama club member...then later found yourself robbing banks for a living, then Luther Luckett Correction Complex in LaGrange, Kentucky, is the prison for you. This fascinating documentary explores the prison

DVD Picture:
Anamorphically enhanced at 1.78:1, this documentary features generally pleasing and adequate image quality for the genre. As is typical of documentaries, image quality is usually quite mediocre, depending on the source element. And with DV-originated images, this documentary can look quite soft at times. Still, the DVD does a nice job at delivering the imagery with little bothersome pixelization. (Suzanne Hodges)
