Welcome Back to the Barrio

A straitlaced Mexican-American college student returns to his Chicago neighborhood after a five-year absence and encounters his former best friend, a trash-talking drug dealer, who seduces him into a wild night on the town. Trouble ensues as they run afoul of a local gang leader who's recruited the student's kid brother. Directed by Jaime Mariscal, this low-budget 2006 feature makes good use of assorted locations, which are more memorable than the cast; one exception is Ramses Jimenez, providing the requisite swagger as the hero's buddy. 107 min.
