Rubble Kings (2010) IMDb

Extent

Seen in 2017.

Categorization

Talking heads and archival footage. Self-described as the true story that inspired The Warriors (1979).

Subject

Gangs in New York, particularly the Bronx in the 1960s and 70s, as remembered by a few surviving luminaries.

Commentary

Aestheticized and shallow oral history. Only one woman made the final cut while nothing is heard from parents, authorities, bystanders etc. There is no attempt to present accurate statistics on gang-related crime by era, or even keep track of time.
