Description by OLDIES.com:
AT CLOSE RANGE: Two brothers stuck in an impoverished household; their father, a notorious professional criminal, drifts in every now and then to leave them some money, but he never stays. The boys are intrigued by their father and his criminal lifestyle, his money, and his girlfriends, and want to get closer to him. Eventually, the father agrees to plan petty heists for the older brother's gang. The father's truly evil nature is revealed when he willingly sacrifices his sons to save his own life.
COLORS: A solid film, featuring superb performances by Sean Penn and Robert Duvall, as veteran/rookie cop partners attached to CRASH, the LAPD's gang-suppression unit. This film represents a serious effort to throw some light on the appalling carnage of L.A. street gangs as seen through the eyes of the LAPD.
