The streets are awashed in Mixed Blood.

Paul Morrissey's Mixed Blood is a grim and bleak look at life on the streets of New York City. Morrissey shot the movie on grainy film stock.  By doing so he gives the film a newsreel type aura. This is no Hollywood movie folks. The acting feels real and so does the situations. He pulls no punches in showing how these people survive day by day. The action scenes are abrupt and to the point. There are no staged or choreographed action set pieces. Everything about this film has a feel of true life and it's gritty and dirty. Many people will be turned off because of this.  But hey what do they know? Mixed Blood is great film that is a must see for fans of crime dramas.  It's a shame that a great film maker like Paul Morrissey has never gotten his due.

Some funny things to look out for are the music store that only sells Menudo records and posters, Marillia Pera's speech on Carmen Miranda and the acting of Linda Kerridge.  Watch out for John Leguizamo and THS alumni Rodney Harvey.
