Walter (48 Hrs.) Hill directed this stark, striking 1979 film that combines the harsh street rhythms of West Side Story with the nightmarish imagery of A Clockwork Orange. The movie, in which a New York street gang fights its way home through rival turf, was blamed for outbreaks of violence when it was shown in theaters.
