BOULEVARD NIGHTS



"Boulevard Nights" is the OG of cholo movies. First released in 1979 by Warner Bros., then the VHS release in 1993. Directed by Michael Pressman, and filmed in East L.A. Raymond Avila (Richard Yniguez) tries to leave behind the gang life, but keeps getting drawn back into it. His little brother Chuco (Danny De La Paz) is already in too deep in the barrio life full of drugs and violence. If you love cholo movies this is a must see... but I must warn you that the acting is not all that great, but then again how many directors in 1979 took on a Chicano film? By the 1990's we had great cholo films like "American Me" and "Mi Familia". Either way it's a classic...
