[size=3][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman][img][/img][/font][/color][/size] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]The Boys Of 2nd Street Park (2003)[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]Directed by: Ron Berger, Dan Klores[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]Starring: Frankie Bass, Larry Brown, Bobby Feld, Brian Newmark[/color][/size][/font] [size=3][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman]So I was at Kmart during Spring Break and saw this film there. The store was going out of business so I decided to buy this DVD for $2.00. I am glad I did. Although not the most exciting documentary, this film brings forth some very prominent social and political issues during the late twientieth century. This film takes place in New York. It shows the tales of boys that all came of age at Brooklyn's Brighton Beach. The tales show their family history, their childhood at the new parks that were paved post-WWII, them all becoming hippies, their college lives, their drafting in Vietnam, and their post-military lives. This film demonstrates the war attitudes in the time of free love and much drug use. The characters are diverse. One is a crackhead, while another one went to Harvard to become of all things a teacher. Some characters in the film bought fake college degrees and falsified their records to make them "unworthy" for combat. The interviews are detailed and add to the diverse elements in the film. However, some of it seems to be dragged out and at some points boring. Overall though I enjoyed this documentary but definately won't watch it multiple times. It was worth my $2.00. haha. I would recommend it though for rental only.[/font][/color][/size]
