"Dhamma Brothers" sounds like an uplifting documentary, anyone seen this?

Yes, it is uplifting.
It is not a matter of achieving Bodhi or attaining Buddhahood. Rather, you yourself become aware that your own mind has always been fully enlightened.

"Uplifting" is not the word I would have chosen, but it is a fantastic film and I cried when I watched it. Metta to everyone living in prisons.

Saw it this week, good stuff, some of the guys obviously got a lot out of it. There was another course there January 2010.

That looks extraodinary! It makes me so happy to see that some Buddhist teachers in the west have the courage to spread the Dharma beyond the usual univeristy-educated, white, upper-middle class audience they usually cater to. There are few greater acts of caring than sharing the Dharma with others.
May all beings find inner peace and attain liberation!
