“Watching this movie is like seeing the world through the eyes of a delusional psychotic who's high on peyote.” - Matt Singer, IFC.com
The trailer voiceover says it all: “The one movie that breaks all the rules, defies all the conventions. The movie that kicks you in the FACE!” All of the above words are 1,000,000% true. This movie does break all the rules, like that rule that said all high school students have to be under the age of 35: SHATTERED! The rule that states when you’ve got slow motion, the voices shouldn’t be at normal speed: DEMOLISHED! You know that other dumb rule about how characters in a film should act and speak like actual human beings: REVOKED! Aging Tae Kwon Do-instructor-turned-actor Jun Chong leads a cast of similarly middle-aged “teenagers” in this psyche-warping tale of high kicks, drunken mothers, rival gangs with equally preposterous racist chants, idiotic altruism, toga parties, sentence fragments, pitchfork fighting and emotional outbursts! A Korean-made chop-socky chock full of gawkin’ at L.A. locales, including Fairfax High School (across the street from Cinefamily!), L.A. Streetfighters is an HFS gem that, like Lost In The Desert and Ninja III before it, is blissfully unaware of its own pure insanity. DJ Carlos Niño (of Dublab and KPFK's "Spaceways") will be here to spin tunes before the film!
Dir. Woo-sang Park, 1985, 35mm, 85 min.
