“Sao Paulo’s infamous House of Detention, the subject of “Prisoner of the Iron Bars (Self-Portraits)” is the same as the one that figures in Hector Babenco’s “Carandiru.”. Possibly even more hard-hitting than the fiction film, this is truly a vision of hell whose morbid fascination turns to indignation as the film proceeds.” Deborah Young, Variety
