I dreamed I was visiting a prison and there was a man who had been hired, performing in white briefs and garter straps. He was tall and thin and he danced around and then put on a white linen suit and left.

My husband said that my dream sounded like Titicut Follies.
Read more about the film.

TITICUT FOLLIES is a documentary film that tells you more than you could possibly want to know — but no more than you should know — about life behind the walls of one of those institutions where we file and forget the criminal insane… A society’s treatment of the least of its citizens — and surely these are the least of ours — is perhaps the best measure of its civilization. The repulsive reality revealed in TITICUT FOLLIES forces us to contemplate our capacity for callousness.

–Richard Schickel, Life
