It's not a gang movie, but the best movie about Chicano life and the Mexican Barrios is Stand and Deliver.
I agree, I recognize that American Me is the better flim but I personally enjoy Blood In Blood Out more, mainly because I think it's a funner film and I have been quoting it with my friends since I was like 12 years old. Probably the most unintentionally hilarious movie I've ever seen. It's got pretty iconic characters like Milkweed, Popeye, pre-pig Paco, Cruzito, Big Al, Montana, Magic, and Chuey.

Stand and Deliver is a good film, but I found the educating-the-troubled-youth theme a bit boring. Edward James Olmos and Lou Diamond Phillips were great in it though.
