'The House I Live In': movie review
The analysis in Eugene Jarecki's documentary on the domestic war on drugs is too simplistic.
â€śThe House I Live In,â€ť Eugene Jareckiâ€™s documentary about the domestic â€śWar on Drugs,â€ť makes the point that over the past 40 years, 40 million arrests have been made, making America the worldâ€™s largest jailer. Yet drugs are cheaper and more available than ever before.
Jareckiâ€™s thesis is that law enforcement targets minority communities, but his analysis is far too simplistic. Since when did pushers become victims? Grade: C+ (Unrated.)
