Description

In what The Hollywood Reporter calls "a brilliant debut", award-winning actor Edward James Olmos sets the screen ablaze with his directorial bow - a powerful, stunning examination of a Latino crime lord, set against a backdrop of prejudice and hopelessness. Olmos stars as Santana, a youth from the streets of East Los Angeles who becomes the leader of the Mexican Mafia behind the gates of Folsom Prison. Once out, Santana discovers that the harsh reality of barrio life and his blood-stained past will not give him the chance to turn his back on his former way of life. With a vehement anti-drug and anti-gang theme, American Me is an explosive and unforgettable epic.

    This is a classic inmate/prison gang movie. It explores what the criminal lifestyle is about. Struggle for power in prison and on the streets. Even putting brother against brother. Great dramatic film. "BLOOD IN BLOOD OUT", is another CLASSIC prison film. Equal to "American Me", in my opinion. Email iTunes to ask for "Blood In Blood Out (HD)".
