Retro Review 1981: Fort Apache, The Bronx

Fort Apache, The Bronx (Original Release Date: 6 February 1981)

Insult and intrigue swap slaps to the viewer's face for much of Fort Apache, The Bronx.  It has strong performances and a stronger cast, along with enough real-feeling moments to make the ones that feel less real stand out.  I suppose it resonated enough with its original audience for it to be one of the few movies from 1981 you won’t have to go out of your way to find.  I found my copy in a four-dollar bargain bin at Walgreens (no hyphen, the Internet tells me).

Finding copies of these movies can be difficult.  Next week’s movie comes to us courtesy of a raid on a local seller’s LaserDisc section, and the movie for the week after that is a rare case of NetFlix’s “Watch Instantly” selection aligning with my interests.  I’ve had a hard enough time »
