The Aryan Brotherhood is a secretive criminal gang that began inside California's maximum-security penitentiaries and expanded rapidly into dozens of state and federal prisons across the nation. Outwardly a white power group, its real interest is in controlling drug and extortion rackets. Now, Explorer unveils this underworld society and comes face-to-face with some of the gang's most infamous members, including a former Aryan Brotherhood leader who, by his own count, has killed 22 men.
Watching this documentary while feasting on some Quesadillas is probably one of the strangest combinations I've ever put together. But, by god, those were some tasty Quesadillas.
I'm usually pretty forgiving of gangland documentaries that don't go very much "in-depth" because I'm sure it's pretty difficult to get people to talk about these things in front of a camera. The interviews they did get were pretty interesting but I've seen episodes of Gangland and some other documentaries on TV that covered more history behind Barry Mills and Tyler Bingham. Other documentaries even talked a little more about John Gotti's involvement with the Aryan Brotherhood. Still, these documentaries are usually pretty interesting and this one was no exception.
A pretty average documentary on the notorious Aryan Brotherhood gang. Unfortunately it doesn't really go anywhere. I would of liked it much more if it focused more on the opinions and feelings of the gang members in prison rather than shaky clips and reenactments.
Pretty scary look into what goes on behind bars. Some pretty graphic scenes too. Quite an interesting documentary though, all be it a short one.
Damn this is a bit gritty... Not much of a story, I think I am just a bit fascinated what the heck really goes on.
