136) The House I Live In (2012)
From the dealer to the narcotics officer, the inmate to the federal judge, a penetrating look inside America’s criminal justice system, revealing the profound human rights implications of U.S. drug policy.
9/10 – There’s something strangely interesting about the American Legal system. Whether it’s wrongful imprisonment, mandatory minimum sentences, baffling oversights of vital evidence, corruption or drug policy – it’s just fantastic viewing when presented right, and a huge shame that in reality the US is no closer to sorting any of this out even with the legalisation of weed.
Compelling, highly detailed documentary. This ticks all the boxes.
