We just got 80 Blocks From Tiffany's DVD in and it looks super ill. I remember hearing about this back in the day, but never go a chance to peep it. It's a documentary on gangs in the South Bronx (Circa '79).
It's directed by Gary Weis and co-produced by Lorne Michaels, who were both working on Saturday Night Live when this was filmed. It centers on two key gangs, The Savage Nomads and The Savage Skulls.
Bonus footage includes a interview with Gary Weir (Director), interview with Joan Churchill (Director of Photography), and a 40 Page Booklet that includes; the original Esquire Magazine article, "Savage Skulls", that inspired the film, an Essay by David Hollander, and artwork by Julian Allen!!
