Movie question

I searched Google, I asked Blockbuster, nobody seems to know, OR they give me the wrong movie.

There is this DVD that I want to buy as a bday gift, he's been asking for it for over a year and none of our friends have any idea either.

It's an older movie, and it's about this guy that goes to juvi (can't remember why, he was in a gang), and in there, he gets raped by this dude - he then gets revenge and kills the dude that rapes him and he gets sentenced to prison for life. He thinks this character is spanish, but he's not sure.

I thought it was "Blood In Blood Out", but it's not that.
Can you movie junkies help me?

Much appreciated,
Joanne

Spanish gang, hence the reason why I thought it would be Blood In... but it wasn't that movie.

He also says that he remembers the characted having scarred face, from bad acne...

Yeah, it's American Me for sure. I've seen it 50 million times but all I remember is the either knife- or bottle-in-ass prision rape scene and edward james olmos's pock-marked face.

Vatos locos forever, mang.

Sounds like it could be "Sleepers" with Jason Patrick, Brad Pitt and Kevin Bacon. They were Irish though but the premise is the exact same.
Good flick.

This guy directed American Me. I read the plot summary and it sounds like it, only it didn't mention the rape. (it was like a bottle or something rape)

Wow, if this is the movie, kmac I owe you BIG TIME, SERIOUSLY. He's been looking for this movie for so long!!!!

It's not "Sleepers", we watched that one, it's GREAT.

No problem, Killa. In highschool I used to smoke weed in these Spanish brother's basement and I swear they made me watch that movie at least once a week. Then their mother would come down and chase them around, trying to hit them with her slipper.
