Navajeros

Navajeros

Directed by Eloy de la Iglesia

NAVAJEROS chronicles the life of Jaro, the leader of a juvenile delinquent gang in late-'70s Spain, depicting his rise from street urchin to outlaw anti-hero on the way to his inevitable end. The child of absentee parents, Jaro has amassed an impressive rap sheet before reaching his 16th birthday, but still finds life unfulfilling. Ambition drives him to take up a sawed-off shotgun and lead his gang on a crime spree that will paint a bloody swathe across the city and drive Jaro closer and closer to violent tragedy. Unflinching and often brutal, the film also treats its subject with genuine humanity.

NAVAJEROS chronicles the life of Jaro, a 15-year-old leader of a juvenile delinquent gang in late-'70s Spain, depicting his rise from street urchin to outlaw anti-hero, and his inevitably tragic end.

Cast: José Luis Manzano, Isela Vega, Verónica Castro, Jaime Garza, Enrique San Francisco

Not sure why this is on Shudder whatsoever... A 'meh' movie about a violent criminal teen who meets an obvious end due to his pride and lack of, well, character... It's okay, but overly long and many scenes needed to be drastically cut down or excised altogether. There's also nothing "tragic" about his end as Shudder's synopsis says, lol.

When the society is delinquent can the youth become anything otherwise?
