Life After Death is the first 100% uncensored documentary of its kind. This film is an appalling saga that focuses on life in prison. Watch closely as you hear first hand from former inmates that have spent years locked up inside some of the most notori

This work interviews 6 male ex-cons, 2 female ex-cons, and one correctional officer about life in prison. I struggle with if this work has the same intentions as "Scared Straight." It does not purposely solely talk about the bad aspects of prison, but it sure did not make it sound fun. One person said prison did not affect him either way, but no one said they would want to go back.
The title may be deceptive. First, it is trying to ride on Biggie Small's album title. By speaking with ex-cons, prison is equated with "death." This was not a work on capital punishment. Though some call it "down time," I think others may gasp at prison life being equated with death. It violates the hope that imprisoned people can move on after their sentence. I do worry some insensitivity went into this work's title.
This is filmed on the cheap, kinda like "Girls Gone Wild." A lot of times, you could barely see the speakers' facial features due to the bad lighting. It had a low sound quality too. There are shots of a prison, but that may have just been stock footage. If it were filmed by the director, a warden must have told her or him that he could tape the place but not interview any person within it.
The documentary interviews more men than women. That's realistic in that most ex-cons are male. This work presents itself as speaking about both sides of prison, by having one correctional officer speaking. It didn't seem two-sided; there should have been more CO's or none at all. If the CO was the only person in that position willing to be interviewed, then that says something strong to me about that line of work. Every interviewee is African-American, but the work vacillates on if it wants to speak about race or assumes an African-American audience.
