Time Out says

Bring 'em back alive documentary for which the crew ventured into the wilds of the South Bronx street-gang territory to talk to members of the Savage Skulls and Savage Nomads. Picturesque shots of the natives posing with steel helmets and swastikas, muttering darkly about dastardly deeds and codes of honour. Muddled and messy, the film is as inarticulate as its heroes.

"inarticulate as the film" It was a film... What is to be expected from people who become product of their environment? Articulate scholars? Perhaps, But at a young age and for it's time... It was simply a raw depiction of the socio structure of a forgotten city. Manhattan for sure did not suffer as much as it's suburbs... Of course not, It was home for the professional un-oppressed anglo saxon "mind the spelling" and it's colors were "green" as in monies.

The Time Out Film Guide is all wet on this one. It's a good, raw, real documentary from the burned-out war zone that was the South Bronx in the 70s. You can watch it in 8 parts on Youtube.
