Synopsis by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Who Shot Patakango? is a coming-of-age tale set in Brooklyn during the late '50s. Though the film briefly suggests racial tensions at the interracial vocational high school where the movie is set, it prefers to pursue a purely nostalgic story line instead. Over the course of the film, the filmmakers run through a number of good-natured, humorous anecdotes about growing up during the late '50s. It's an entertaining, if slight, film that features a fine performance by David Knight as the film's narrator.
