Another Gang(ster) Movie

So, who needs another movie about gangs; a movie aiming at a particular blunt portrayal of reality on top of that; a movie seemingly about Latino street gangs, which according to some folks is a not very helpful part of the image of Mexican-Americans. I write “seemingly” because to me it is less about “Latino street gangs” than it is about history and society, it is about the way we conducted ourselves primarily over the last 100 years.
