I went to a Hollywood screening Oct. 20, 2002, and enjoyed the
efforts of young director John Marino, who cast rising starlet Alison Lohman and his appealing own son, Johnny Green, in a gritty street movie that pits white guys, with an assist from some authentic street-fighting Afro-American actors, against Nazi skinheads. It's hard to believe that this film was shot on a budget of less than a hundred thousand dollars, because they got a lot on the screen for that mere pittance. Jan-Michael Vincent is fine as a boozing, bleary-eyed cop, and director John Avildsen's son Jonathan is a nasty villain. Veteran New Yorker John "Cha Cha" Ciarcia exec-produced, and the overall effect of "White Boy" is very good. I give it a 6, and wonder what Marino, Lohman, and Green could have done with even a $2.0M budget. As is, this was well worth seeing. The host of supporting character actors all scored well with the audience. I hope Marino gets a nice foreign and domestic distribution deal.
