I would really appreciate your help on this one, guys.
I'm trying to propose a research topic to one of my lecturers for a penology subject I am doing (i.e. the study of prisons and punishment).
What I want to research is prison films - specifically COMEDY films.
This may seem a little odd, but if we can judge a society by the way
it treats its least desired (prisoners), can the same be said for the way we LAUGH at them?
What I need YOUR help with is some specific examples.
So far I have the following related films:
- The Blues Brothers
- Porridge (the TV series)
- Life (with Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence)
- Lucky Break
- Mean Machine
- Two-way Stretch (1960) with Peter Sellers
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Try not to make them too obscure, as I do have to find and watch them at some stage
Cheers and thanks in advance.
