What do the reviews say?

Generally, the reviews for the film are positive due to its cultural importance and tone. Travis Akbar from The Curb stated: “Director Alex Siddons has done a great job at bringing the efforts of The Torch to the screen and telling the stories of the Confined 8, but as I said earlier there plenty of heartbreak, so you may need to keep a Kleenex handy. Art of Incarceration is honest, fascinating and shows you what can happen when you give some one proper guidance and care.”
