Movie Reviews

For those who only have Wannabes in their town
C. Smith | Nashville, TN | 02/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a 2 video set that does a then-and-now look at the gang problem in a perhaps unexpected location. The videos are excellent for trying to understand the gang mentality from a documentary perspective.

If your Smalltown, USA leadership is denying the existence of gang members 'cause they're just wannabe's, get this video and show it everwhere you can."

"I heard about this from a website and knew I had to see it. It was very powerful and engaging. I have never been able to replicate the feeling of being raised in this type of a society. This dvd was able to capture all the emotion necessary to accurately depict the situation for many of its members. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to view it. Excellent purchase!"
Exceptional (and deeply troubling)
The Concise Critic: | New England | 02/05/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is my country?
I'm ashamed; I'm concerned; I'm frightened. But at least, now, I am better informed.
This is excellent film-making. It disturbs because in tells the truth (First, in Disc 1, the truth of Little Rock, Arkansas in 1994; second, in Disc 2, the truth 10 years later.)
Hold your breath, America; or cross your fingers, America; or--if this is your preference in faith--pray, America: a long, tragic ride may be beginning."
