This subjective approach subsumes the film's powerful subject, making 'In Prison My Whole Life' just another self absorbed agit-prop documentary.
| Original Score: 2/6
A worthy film, highlighting what seems to be a rank injustice, but one that is irritating and poorly put together.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Essentially a Trojan-horse documentary that purports to deal with the crime, it is actually a discussion on race, politics and the American psyche.
| Original Score: 3/5
A well-meaning but unfocused documentary.
| Original Score: 2/5
While some of the testimony, from the likes of Steve Earle and Mos Def is powerful, many of the parallels Francome and Evans attempt to draw feel slightly spurious and their conclusions lack sufficient back up.
It's something you need to see if you don't know anything about Mumia or if, somehow, you missed the notion that bigotry is rampant on the police force.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The legitimate case for death-row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal's retrial gets another airing in British helmer Marc Evans' unfocused, oddly naive In Prison My Whole Life.
Despite the complex subject matter the film retains a hopeful tone.
