Tom [a.k.a. The Bad Bunch] (1973)


Violence and racial tension punctuate this fast moving action film, that is a study of prejudice and discrimination. This is the story of a black gang who run the streets of Watts and of Jim, a white man, who tries to befriend them. Prejudice stands in the way of any friendship and turns black against white in a bloody act of vengeance. This film, set in the mid '70's, does much to show how society has progressed, but to some it may seem that "the more thing change, the more they stay the same."
