The main idea of this book is to study a number of well-known prison films from an analytical and historical perspective. The prison movie is not only its own separate genre, it is also a unique one at that. In addition to surveying the genre from 1930-2000, the book deconstructs twelve films in great detail through full annotated summaries based on the codes and conventions of the proposed genre.
