Bleak, inherently disturbing documentary of the conditions at the Bridgewater State Prison for the Criminally Insane circa 1966. The camera doesn't flinch as it reveals the day-to-day activities of both the inmates (who spend most of their time naked - or nearly so - in small cells) and the staff. It's a fascinating but thoroughly depressing watch, that will stay with you.
