Ghosts ... of the Civil Dead & Scum

There are plenty of prison films, but I've only ever seen two believable ones.

Ghosts ... of the Civil Dead isn't Nick Cave's singular vision (he a co-writer) but the film perfectly mirrors the themes in his songwriting.  No escape, no redemption, no happy endings.

It would be fair to say Ghosts ... of the Civil Dead owes a certain amount of dept to Scum, an equally grim and affecting film.  

This ain't Hollywood, that's for sure.  

Merry Christmas everyone.
