That Old Gang of Mine. Movies about Friendship, Loyalty, and the Culture of Violence.
Beck, Bernard
Multicultural Education, v5 n1 p28-30 Fall 1997
Reviews three contemporary movies, "Sleepers,""Girls Town," and "Slingblade" in which the common thread is abuse of helpless children by patriarchal authorities, adult white men who assert power over young people. In all three movies, the anger of the young people and their friends suggests respect for the righteousness of violence that raises many social questions. (SLD)
