About the film:
Randy commits a victimless crime that would normally get him probation and a hefty fine, but in the "three-strikes" world of justice, he finds himself locked up for 25 years. His cellmate Jake is a congenial yet remorseless lifer who casually informs Randy that he slit his wife's throat because she slept with another man just three months after they exchanged vows. Jake recognizes Randy's fear and offers him advice on how to make it in prison. But it soon becomes clear that Jake has much more than mentoring in mind as he takes Randy under his wing. "Jailbait" sets a darkly cerebral tone, juxtaposing brutality with the unattainable ideal of intimacy in the harshest of psychological environments. For these two men so yearning to be anything but who they are and where they are, power is the goal, and it's never clear who truly holds it right up to the last unsettling moment.
Rated R for pervasive language including graphic sexual dialogue, and some violence.

person back in the day.. but he is one of the few ppeole from back then who actually GREW the fuck up, left all the negativity behind and is one of the coolest, laid back ppeole out there right now... As opposed to others who still wave the flag of negative energy after 20 years. Many of us were involved in the scene from when we were young kids.. shit happens. What counts is that you grow out of the BS and take responsibility for your past mistakes by being a better person now. and yeah, he is THE one to talk to about a City Gardens film. He lived it. BERK: I wouldn't say "be careful" cause it ain't even like that.. but you need to just check yourself fool.

re:berk...first of all, you are entitled to any opoinin you may have, regardless of it's validity...as one of the people involved in this project,i also have an opoinin...we are making a documentary,which is a film based on the real world and real people,depicting things as they are, or telling about events that happened in a truthful or objective manner.. our documentary is about CITY GARDENS,an iconic venue in trenton nj...a history,of sorts,of the 80's thru 90's punk/hc era as told by the people who worked there, hung out there, and some of the musicians who played there..how city gardens influenced and/or changed their lives and where they are now... we just started this project, and we have literally hundreds of people to interview/film yet...each one of them has a story to tell... how you make an offhand statement " we couldn't find anyone else to interview except some pussy suburban gang member"is pretty ridiculous on your part... your obviously referring to alex franklin....do you actually know alex ???? i'm willing to bet you don't... you just THINK you know what he's all about, and you go on a public forum and mouth off about him, probably thinking that he won't ever know about it,therefore can't defend himself... i'm not defending him, but i'll tell you why i chose to interview him...because he has a story.. he went to many,many shows there...i spent probably more time than anyone there as i was documenting that era in my photographs... alex was part of a group of people who really spent time there...people that i would see on a weekly basis...these are the people who are the core of our film...we aren't making a film to judge anyone,just a film about a collective experience,shared by many....
