Hangin' with the Homeboys ★★★ 1991 (R)

One night in the lives of four young men. Although the Bronx doesn't offer much for any of them, they have little interest in escaping its confines, and they are more than willing to complain. Characters are insightfully written and well portrayed, with strongest work from Serrano as a Puerto Rican who is trying to pass himself off as Italian. Lack of plot may frustrate some viewers. 89m/C VHS, DVD . Mario Joyner, Doug E. Doug, John Leguizamo, Nestor Serrano, Kimberly Russell, Mary B. Ward, Christine Claravall, Rosemark Jackson, Reggie Montgomery; D: Joseph B. Vasquez; W: Joseph B. Vasquez; C: Anghel Decca. Sundance ‘91: Screenplay.
