Band of the Hand

( 1 )

Overview

Former Starsky and Hutch star Paul Michael Glaser warmed the director's chair for Band of the Hand.

The boys begin to panic until hardcase Vietnam veteran Stephen Lang arrives. Lang explains that they've been paroled in his custody, and that it is his task to teach them how to work as a team in order to survive (one would think that this would be the ...

Overview

Former Starsky and Hutch star Paul Michael Glaser warmed the director's chair for Band of the Hand. The film zeroes in on five juvenile delinquents who are plucked from their various detention facilities and unceremoniously dumped in the wilds of the Everglades. The boys begin to panic until hardcase Vietnam veteran Stephen Lang arrives. Lang explains that they've been paroled in his custody, and that it is his task to teach them how to work as a team in order to survive (one would think that this would be the last thing any penal institution would want to teach an urban gang member!) The logic of this plan is to whip the boys into an elite vigilante unit, then sic them on the various drug dealers of America. The five male leads are largely forgettable, but the film does afford us some glimpses of such stars-to-be as Lauren Holly (playing the reluctant mistress of a drug lord) and Larry Fishburne (as Holly's "protector"). Bob Dylan can be heard singing the title song.

    My tenth graders loved this

    We were doing a unit on teenage crime and rehabilitation when I pulled this video out of my memory and used it in class as a culminating activity. My tenth graders, inner city kids from an economically depressed area, were silent and attentive throughout the movie. some of their best writing came from prompts regarding the plot and conflicts presented.
