Believe it or not, that movie was written by a New Mexican, Jimmy Santiago Baca. His brief story: he grew up in NM, had been in a street gang and got into trouble, was sent to prison, while in prison he turned himself around and started writing poetry, got out of prison and started himself on a career in writing.

Cool, didn't know that. Good for him for turning his life around.

A few months ago I actually watched the 25th anniversary cast reunion for blood in blood out on youtube. It has become a pretty big cult classic. Personally I prefer the movie "American me", but blood in blood out is good too. Blood in blood out seems to have a bigger fan base.

You can check out Jimmy Santiago Baca's:
- "Black Mesa Poems" - a collection of some his earlier poems.

- "Martin and Meditations on the South Valley" - the South Valley is where I grew up. It's the area of the Rio Grande river valley covered by the old Atrisco Land Grant. It's also known as the "Valle de Atrisco".

Did you ever see Stand and Deliver? I had a friend in college, she was from East L.A. and was in that guys' Calculus class.

I don't listen to that brainless, too basic garbage rap. I prefer this.

Yeah that movie is a classic. That movie along with lean on me really take me back to the 80s. I saw both in theatres as a kid. I really like both.

Thanks for the recommendations. Ill
Check it out.
