This is Bakshi's second worst film (next to Cool World). The story takes us back to the 1950's, to tell of youth gangs during that era. First off, the music is not right for the era. It's 1980's punk rock and the story takes place in 1953, before rock was even discovered! Plus, the sleazy characters they have boggles the mind. You can't identify with any of the characters, even if you lived around that time. Finally, you can tell that the film was sliced and diced a lot, because nothing really makes sense. There are better films than this around about the 1950's like Rebel Without A Cause. Rent this film, you won't learn much about the fifties.
