*smacks self for forgetting*

Based on the true life experiences of poet Jimmy Santiago Baca, the film focuses on half-brothers Paco and Cruz, and their bi-racial cousin Miklo. It opens in 1972, as the three are members of an East L.A. gang known as the "Vatos Locos", and the story focuses on how a violent crime and the influence of narcotics alter their lives. Miklo is incarcerated and sent to San Quentin, where he makes a "home" for himself. Cruz becomes an exceptional artist, but a heroin addiction overcomes him with tragic results. Paco becomes a cop and an enemy to his "carnal", Miklo.

A buddy film. Big city atmosphere. Something that doesn't take it-self serious. Within the lines of that.

I think Le Mepris and Pierrot Le Fou are his two best, both with good use of color. IMO though Francois Traffaut, Alain Resnais, and Jean Pierre-Melville are better, Louis Malle is close too.

Jean Cocteau is another good french director, before the new wave. Orpheus, Beauty and The Beast, and Blood of a Poet are good early surreal french films. I didn't list Orpheus and Beauty and The Beast because they are common stories though.
