Quick Movie Review: Lords of Flatbush (1974)

Apparently this is a classic, but I guess you had to be there. The cast is likable and it’s supposed to show a glimpse of an era passed, although nothing very substantial happens and you really want more from it. The dialogue is pretty good, but much of it is a dead-end and seemingly lost introspect. It’s not as raw as it should be and it’s not as warm as you want it to be. It just kinda falls in the middle somewhere. It’s very low budget, so you can excuse the quality. I just really wish there was more Henry Winkler in this. 

 

A better alternative can be found anywhere between American Graffiti and Diner.
