Last Exit to Brooklyn Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: HAILED AS AN UNCOMPROMISING LOOK AT LIFE ON THE DARK SIDE, LAST EXIT TO BROOKLYN FOLLOWS A GANG OF YOUNG HOODLUMS, A DOWN AND OUT CALL GIRL, AN ALCOHOLIC FATHER, AND A LOW LEVEL UNION OFFICIAL AS THEY ATTEMPT TO SURVIVE IN THE HARSH UNDERBELLY OF LOWER CLASS 1950S BROOKLYN.

Review: The 1950s were a time of sock hops and happy suburbs and smiling faces...or so history and television would have you think.  Last Exit to Brooklyn explores the rarely seen harsh reality for the working class of the time.  Things were still hard for them and this film really does a fantastic job of showing the plight of the ignorant.   This film is moving and is absolutely one of the coolest we've seen in awhile.  We get a fresh look at a period in American history that has been traditionally glossed over.

Interest Range: Drama
