1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 1 library worldwide
Die Geschichte einiger junger Rebellen aus der amerikanischen Depressionszeit zu Beginn der 30er Jahre, die mit ihren unreflektierten Versuchen, mehr soziale Gerechtigkeit zu schaffen, allmählich zu berüchtigten Verbrechern werden. In Ansätzen eindringlich, erstickt die sozialkritische Ambition in Brutalität und Blut. Scorseses zweiter Spielfilm, eine Auftragsarbeit für Roger Corman, war in Deutschland fast 10 Jahre lang lediglich in einer stark gekürzten Synchronfassung zu sehen, ab 1982 in der untertitelten Originalfassung. Erst 1989 präsentierte das ZDF unter dem Titel "Boxcar Bertha - Die Faust der Rebellen" eine ungekürzte Synchronfassung. [film-dienst]
