Storyline

Brazilian drug dealers in the lower east side of Manhattan start a war with a rival gang of Latino drug dealers. Their soldiers are Latino kids all under 17 because, as Rita La Punta says, "They can kill and not go to jail." The war escalates to include their German heroin supplier, his sexy English girl friend, a Puerto Rican ex-cop, and the Japanese police captain. This movie is about racism, police corruption, junkies and drug dealing. There is plenty of killing and even a visit to a store dedicated to the Latino pop group "Menudo."

Mixed Blood to be released on DVD - February 2006
8 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have already reviewed this great film and, therefore, I will just say that it is still remains one of my favourites. If I owned a cinema I would show Mixed Blood, Hanging with the Homeboys, Taxidriver and The Warriors every Saturday night! Anyway, the reason for the post is to let you know that Mixed Blood is finally getting a DVD release in February 2006. Hurrah!

I suspect that Paul Morrissey has not been pushing too hard for this as he certainly doesn't need the money. I read that he has made a mint on property over the years. Good luck to him! Anyone that can create a good fun piece of celluloid like Mixed Blood deserves a few million.

Lastly, I have to mention one of the really promising actors - Rodney Harvey - who is sadly no longer with us. He is the cool charismatic one who shoots Juan the Bullet at the end whilst puffing on a cigarette! Rodney - you are missed.
