Regarded as (one of) the best Chicano films ever, Zoot Suit is a historical counter-statement against wartime racism, an allegory of Chicano cultural resistance, and a powerful artistic statement. It's inimitable rendering also captures the evolution and transformation of the magical Chicano teatro movement of the 60's-70's into cinema. Rhetorically, the film captures the underground Chicano language of the pachuco, de aquellas, mas firme que wow, y a toda madre buti suave. Transformed my outlook on Chicano artistic capacities and potentials when I saw this as a teenager.
