Editorial Reviews

Manhattan is torn apart by a vicious gang war between underage, rival Latino and Brazilian gangs, with a German drug supplier caught in the middle. Quirky, thrilling, and unforgettable, this vivid, witty, and action-packed portrait of New York's mean streets from cult director Paul Morrissey (Heat, Blood for Dracula) influenced an entire generation of urban and gangster cinema.

"Mixed Blood" is like a time capsule, showcasing a New York that simply does not exist anymore. Alphabet City has never looked so grimy and dangerous, and so strangely beautiful as it does in this film. Marilla Pera from the astounding film "Pixote" is mesmerizing as the "den mother" to a gang of young drug-dealing, murdering thugs, all of them under age, as they can't be sent to jail if they are caught. Her and her dumb but sexy son Thiago are the ringleaders of a major cocaine/heroin business run out in the open, in front of corrupt cops and countless strung-out junkies. "Mixed Blood" also features a collection of the most beautiful and exotic Latino actors ever seen in one film. Recommended for fans of the film "Pixote," and other films about gangs and youth crime. and for those who spent time in NYC in the 80's to early 90's, this one will blow your mind! There is even a shootout in the Menudo store, "Menuditis!" And the little details of slum life that the director picks up on are amazing. Like the kids who sleep on the floor, with their pant legs tied up with rope to keep out the bedbugs! The dvd is widescreen and the print looks terrific, especially compared to that washed out print from the old VHS. Excellent, low budget film, and startlingly realistic, especially compared to over-stylized fluff like the film "Alphabet City" with Vincent Spano. "Mixed Blood" is the real thing, a ghetto version of "Scarface," only no one seems to get rich. On a side note, the film contains a surprisngly high level of violence, most of which looks very realistic, not to mention a very unflattering portrayal of foreigners making their living in New York, ( in other words, this one is quite politically incorrect!)

If you jog their memory a little,basically,everybody knows who Paul Morrissey is; he's the fellow who actually directed that legendary underground trilogy Andy Warhol always gets credit for: FLESH, TRASH,and HEAT. What few people know is that Morrissey directed another trilogy of arguably greater scope and power in the 1980's: FORTY DEUCE,MIXED BLOOD and SPIKE OF BENSONHURST. Both MIXED BLOOD and SPIKE are currently to be had for next to nothing on VHS; it's not an opportunity to be missed. MIXED BLOOD is probably one of the most disturbing films you'll ever see: a middle-aged South American woman has moved to NYC to start a good business,namely taking over the coke trade in Alphabet City,a section of Manhattan "noted for it's diversity". Her right-hand,lover and son is a somewhat slow-witted thug named Thiago,who introduces a wild card in the form of a beautiful siren - a Marilyn Monroe look-alike, whose naive craving for adventures in the unberbelly of the NYC drug world brings near disaster to Thiago & Mom, involved as they are in liquidating the competition. Mom's army,by the way,consists of teenage boys and even a few grade-school kids. The old kids serve as killers and the young'uns run the drugs,everybody camps out in an old abandoned building,the Marilyn can't understand why don't get a better place,they can afford it,can't they? Yeah,but their whole scene rather demands a poorly policed neighborhood and a building with no neighbors. The naive adventuress is going to get everybody killed,before she ends up being killed herself. This a powerful and completely bizarre movie,not to be taken for an action movie,though there is no shortage of that.Read more ›

Touching, funny, and weird. LIke nothing else ever. Especially like the way the mentally deficient but handsome mother-gang leader's son always talks like he's yelling. Bizarro World version of Romeo and Juliet set in the Lower East Side's Alphabet City before yuppification was even imaginable.

Paul Morrissey managed to do what very few filmmakers ever have: to tell the story of fringe groups whose story has never been told WITHOUT oversimplifying or forcing the viewer to accept his own conclusions. Like Ellison's "Invisible Man" and Selby's "Last Exit to Brooklyn" it neither condemns nor excuses these fringe characters. It also reminds me a little of the brilliant Brazilian film "City of God." The setting here is alphabet city, the very meanest part of lower Manhattan in 1984. South American, Asian, Puerto Rican, German, all scheme to cut into each others' drug turf. The first hour is slightly awkward and amateurish, but the second hour more than makes up for it.

This movie is probably the worst movie I ever seen in so many levels. It is extremely violent, grotesque, racist, ridiculous and offensive. The characters do not make sense in thought and actions, from beginning to the bitter end. The movie has no plot structure but the purpose of portraying and reinforcing negative stereotypes about Spanish, and Portuguese speaking people in New York city. Besides the story not being realistic, physical impossibilities are constant in the film as well and as am example there was a young man who got shot through the chest(lung)and he was perfectly functional when this would be a fatal wound in real life. A team of mother and son from Brazil, recruit local Spanish speaking people to go to war with local Spanish speaking people making this unreasonable and unrealistic. A New York city ex cop, who looks like a french painter, and talks with a fake Spanish accent reminds me of Steve Martin in the Pink Panther films. The only thing that I enjoyed in this film was seeing footage of New York city during the early 80's and the disturbing imagery of a filthy, gritty urban landfill echoing human despair and pain of a time and place better of forgotten. It is also worth mentioning that the scene with a young man injecting heroin looked so real I bet they actually had the man inject himself in the film. Whether it was real heroin or not I do not know but dose scars in his arm looked very convincing. All and all this movie is offensive to all people mentioned in the film but particularly to the Spanish Speaking communities and their positive contributions to United States history and New York city society I do not endorse this film what so ever.
