mehReviewed bybutternuttVote: 5/10

The documentary is pretty one-sided in terms of what it covers. But I don't begrudge that what it does address did lead to gangs (segregation, racism, etc.). The film tells this side well with good background and history. I learned a lot about LA racial history. However, the "criminal enterprise" aspect of gangs isn't really addressed at all. Gangs have structures, turf, and commerce. While they may have sprung from hopelessness and segregation, they evolved into criminal enterprises that are quick to use deadly violence.

I give this film 5 stars because it really addresses half the story. It is a good history lesson on why gangs came to be, but I would have liked to understand their structure and commerce more (the day-to-day reasons for their existence and brutality). The film kind of shrugs off the violence as gang members list many reasons why their lives suck. That's fine, but it really needed to be balanced more with what they gain from gangs through drugs, robbery and violence. The gang members are not powerless victims - they profit from and gain status from the violence.

Crips and Bloods: Made in America..... Red, Whitey and Blue.Reviewed byjulian kennedyVote: 5/10

Crips and Bloods: Made in America: 5 out of 10: This documentary starts out with the eye opening fact that the 15,000 killed in gang violence between the Crips and the Bloods is 5 times the number killed in the Troubles in Northern Ireland. I found this particularity poignant since the Irish troubles always struck me as one of the stupidest wars in modern history. Clearly The Crips and the Bloods are in that category. (One might also note that in both conflicts the participants consist almost entirely of people too poor or stupid to move out of the neighborhood when the best and brightest already fled. But I will get to that in a minute.) First a bit of praise. The documentary is well shot with great music and narration and a nice selection of both interview subjects and ideas. You very well may learn something and you cannot help feel for those that have senseless suffered from the violence.

I sometimes come down hard on documentaries that are one sided pieces of propaganda that try to fit every fact into their pre-conceived notions. Crips and Bloods surprisingly doesn’t do that. Instead it is all over the map blaming everything from whitey, to absentee fathers, to whitey, to factories closing down, to whitey, to immigrants, and even white people share some of the blame in this documentary. Every five minute blurb seems to have a different bad guy. Though in most cases the finger often points back to whitey. (Fathers wouldn’t be absent if THE MAN didn’t keep jailing them etc)

But with an African American in the White House the films analysis seems hopeless dated. The question of why the gangs are still fighting is left unanswered. And the black middle class and upper classes flight is left unmentioned as either a cause of the troubles (which it clearly contributed to) or an effect (Honestly no-one blames white people for poverty in Appalachia so why should blacks in Brentwood be responsible for the poor of Compton?)

The other cause often left unmentioned are the gangbangers themselves taking the easy way out. I have rarely heard so many grown men blame their mothers outside of a Borsch Belt comedy. Somebody needs to buy these gangbangers a mirror and a clue.

The film does a wonderful job painting the rather long history of this area of Los Angeles including immigration during World War 2, both riots and the civil rights struggles. But it struggles once it hits 1980 or so and that is a shame. I guess the answers for the last twenty five years of bloodshed are not as clear. And one feels they are also not as flattering to the victimization that some of the subjects wear like a badge of honor.

Something not normally filmedReviewed bybreakdownthatfilm-blogspot-comVote: 10/10

To understand how certain groups of individuals work on a very personal level, one must get into the field and experience it for themselves. However, there are some places that filmmakers would not go very often. These places are the fighting grounds between the Bloods and the Crips. But what's astounding enough is that director Stacy Peralta is able to get under the skin of these two gangs and dig up as much personal information as she can.

At beginning of this documentary, viewers will see the progression of how the Crips and the Bloods came to be today and how the mindset of the older generation changed in the ones who came after them. No stone is left unturned here. Even more surprising is how the people who lived through that time tell this story! The audience will not receive a second hand story...they will receive,..the truth because this comes from the people who experienced it.

And the most riveting thing that one will see is actual interviews with Crip and Blood members; current and retired. They tell it how it is and what people should expect if someone walks through their neighborhood and what is being done to correct this problem. I'm curious to even if the producers themselves felt uncomfortable doing this movie. I sure would,...to most, it's the ticket straight to death's door. Not many people are willing to go so easily. It takes a lot of courage. And the most ironic thing about this film is its title and that's because it's true.

All will be revealed in this very serious and yet careful documentary. Once people understand what goes on there, this situation should hopefully dissolve.
