User Reviews

Pretty decent film
3 January 2017 | by tprspanSee all my reviews

I saw this film on HBO On Demand(film is done almost entirely in English), and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It has a documentary feel to it at times, as the film moves well between the history of the Young Lords of New York City and the modern life of young Puertorricans in today's New York.

The film started slowly and a bit clumsily, but got better as it moved on. As was stated in another review, the film receives merit simply for the topic, but it does seem to have some problems, mainly with timing, editing, and some not so good acting at times. For example, plot lines were thrown out there and never finished up. Still, I think this film is important, as it brings to light The Young Lords and their movement of the late 60s.
