The Reviews for Crips and Bloods: Made in America (2008) 1080p

Very thorough, visually interesting, and powerful DocumentaryReviewed byChristianstrevy-1Vote: 10/10

I recently saw this at Birmingham, Alabama's Sidewalk Film Festival. Stacey spoke afterward the screening about how the movie was shown many times to people in LA to make sure that he was getting the right angle. Also, that he spent months WITHOUT a camera getting to know the people that were featured in the film.

Living in Birmingham, being one the nation's most dangerous and racially-divided cities, I can see how this film is relatable to all oppression-linked crime.

I think that this issue is extremely too large for Stacey to have adjusted his focus any wider. To ask the director to squeeze more information into this documentary would be asking too much of him. I thought that it was, over-all, very interesting visually and in meaning which can be hard to come by in today's documentaries. I really hope HBO or some other distributer picks this doc up. It needs to be seen, not only by LA natives, but all of America.

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.

these are facts not opinionsReviewed byashante-m-williamsVote: 10/10

first off where do you come off yapping about something you know nothing about. no it's not about flashy flashy or just showing off muscles. it's about everyday living. not even the fact of not have a father around when growing up. because if you paid any attention to the movie for a lot of people thats all they know. lets take you for example you grew up the way you did with or without a father around right? well basically thats why you are the way you are because you grew up that way. same here. for many people their fathers and even some mothers was living the life style so what do that leave the child... do you follow me? i truly think you do not need to watch shows like this if you can't understand because actually it's more too it than what you can ever begin to understand. its not by choice its by force. can we help the way we are. and if you gonna be a sorry low self esteem fool & try to degrade the black community of south central Los Angeles based off a movie then i think you need to go and move there and experience it face to face. go & try to live the life. but i can guarantee you this, without even know who you are or ever meeting you in person you will not survive no more than a few minutes... so my point again is it's not a movie its a actual life style for many people and to give you a little more knowledge that movie was made to show the world and let people tell their story that was never told . so you go find a Adam Sander or Jim Carey movie and make your comments off of them.. since you want to judge movies for a living chump...
