Example text

Mann's next documentary effort, the thirty-seven minute short 17 Days Down the Line (1972), focused on "a Newsweek correspondent rediscovering his native land after five years abroad," closely paralleling the trajectory of the director's own life at the time, for in that same year Mann moved from Europe to Los Angeles to make his mark in television production. 11 He did not break into the industry right away, but soon found that writing for television was one way to make a living through creative work.

That this "unofficial" version of a popular song should be used in the opening credits parallels the ways in which we will later see the prisoners use and appropriate popular culture, from Stiles's evocation of the Jimmie Walker character from Good Times to the radio broadcast of the Olympic race which takes on an entirely unintended and unique meaning when it underscores Murphy's own triumphant run within the walls of the prison. In this scene, the music clearly comes from a single diegetic source- the prisoner's headphones-but the tune also has a commanding presence which sounds nothing close to what true diegetic source music should properly sound like.

Mann's formal style seems somewhat removed from many of these meanings; conversations between characters mostly unfold in simple shotlreactionshots without much stylistic commentary on the prison's social order. Additionally, the characters seem totally innocent of the ways in which they make use of the particular power they wield at the multiple positions on the social hierarchy they hold, unlike Frank and Leo in Thief or Bergman and Wigand in The Insider. And unlike those in Thief, the characters in The Jericho Mile ultimately work together to collectively achieve goals.
