The Bronx War
The director of Hangin' With the Homeboys offers another slice of life on the mean streets. Tito Sunshine (Joseph B. Vasquez) has every intention of helping his Bronx neighbors. This he does with a hefty bankroll and a surfeit of good cheer. Only one problem: Tito supports himself by selling crack. The youth's skewered sense of morality leads to several tragic complications. The film comes to a violent head during a gang war fomented by a romantic triangle. The Bronx War is not for the squeamish: in fact, its original director's cut was so violent that it was unable to qualify even for an R rating (that version, still unrated, has been made available for video).
