Is this the greatest Buddhist movie ? - Dhamma Brothers

The Dhamma Brothers is a documentary film which cam out in 2007 and concerns a jail-house meditation course that was run at the Donaldson Prison in Bessemer, Alabama,USA. The film focuses on four inmates, who were all convicted of murder.Alongside the testimony of the prsioners it also includes the opinions of the guards, various prison officials, and local people.To fully understand what they had done it also includes dramatizatioon of the inmates' crimes. Music for the film is by Low, New Order and Sigur Rós.

It is a wondefully compelling account of an astonishing treatment program with prisoners that, against all probablities , actually worked and makes it plain that no human being should be considered beyond the reach of redemption.
