The Lords of Flatbush Reviews

Jay Cocks

The movie is adept at portraying aimlessness, getting at the greasy anomie that was so much a part of that time. But there is a lack of ambition, as if no one involved in creating the film wanted to cut deeper than a little double-edged nostalgia.

Not too much finesse distinguishes the script, which carries neither warmth nor particular interest for the various characters.

A small masterpiece that places the mood and general ethos of the '50s with absolute precision and total affection.

Like first love, this study of the growing pains of the leather jacket-bobby soxer Brooklyn high school set of 1957 is, by turns, cheerful, confused, juvenile and never fully realized.
