I can't think of too many prison movies I own. However, I highly recommend Ghosts Of The Civil Dead (joint written/composed by Nick Cave), which is one I do.

Oh, and although pure cheese, I love the prison segment in Blood In, Blood Out: Bound By Honor. One of my guilty pleasures, that movie.

"Vatos Locos!"

If you like Blood In Blood Out you should watch American Me.

Far less silly.

I love Blood In Blood Out, particularly its TV movie style. It has the most incredible case of over-acting from the lead actor (Damien Chapa), and is one of the most playful la gang movies I've seen, but for a 3hr + movie it just whizzes by. I IMDB'ed Damien Chapa the other day, and it appears he has written/directed a biographical movie about Roman Polanski, in which he's playing Polanski! Completely bizzare.

I'll check out American Me. Thanks for the tip.

Benjamin Bratts hard man ese in the first part of the film was hilarious. But then his DEA undercover look is even funnier later on in the film.

American Me is a lot more serious.

Some horrible "prison lovin" scenes though
