Captures the Bronx of the '60s perfectly

1/19/18. It was nice to finally watch this movie in DVD that came along with a couple of short docs made in 2017 that added background material. It is a true cult classic. Similar to other teen movies depicting the teenage angst, this one was great for capturing the Bronx of the '60s. The footage of the Bronx's Fordham Road, and Alexander's brought back great memories of a time when it was great to live in that borough! Good casting made this movie worth catching. Wahl and Allen were phenomenal! And, so was the Bronx!

OK with usual flaws.

Liked the film to a certain point, but really wish Hollywood would change the generic narrative. Italian & Black gangs are basically decent guys, Chinese gangs are fearsome for using Kung FU. Whilst all White gangs are vicious ignorant brutes, get real. All gangs are Clanish, which is worse than racist, our Scottish gangs have been fighting each other for centuries. If you ignore the obvious stereotyping of White gangs you can enjoy this film if only for the soundtrack itself.

Classic Gang Film

Set against the urban jungle of 1963 New York's gangland subculture, this coming of age teenage movie is set around the Italian gang the Wanderers.

This story is something like a blend between "The Warriors" and "American Graffiti", though for some reason is not as well known as either of them. My suspicion is because there are no real breakout stars. A few familiar faces, but nobody huge. This likely sent it back into obscurity.

What stands out for me is the dynamite soundtrack. The film is funny and has a good plot, but that soundtrack is just perfect and something I would gladly listen to over and over again. I don't know how music rights worked at the time, but today a film like this would probably cost a fortune just on licensing.
