Rather than being an exploitive "day in the life" sort of production, this powerful documentary digs deep into the real causes of gang warfare, both systematic and localized. Though the Crips and Bloods are the primary subject, the theories presented are applicable across the nation. Thankfully, "Made In America" is more than just bleak statistics and hopelessness; it suggests some practical first steps towards broader reconciliation. There is much work to be done, and it'll start when everyone in America sees this moving film. If you want a more stylized "day in the life" sort of thing, watch "Boyz N The Hood" or "Menace 2 Society." This is the real deal.
