tiggity-tight brah!
20 February 2005 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

-spoils- andre the giant has a posse is a 15 minute documentary about a sticker campaign and the philosophy behind it. the film is a good watch, the right length, and its actually pretty motivating in a dirty sort of way. one of helen sticklers earlier works, this film is the launching pad both for fairey and stickler to their current carriers as artist/filmmaker. the short goes on a "pbs style" background information diatribe which basically says the stickers are meaningless. however it acknowledges the meaning that the viewer brings to the stickers as well as the artists intention of the distrupting blank public surfaces in order to heighten the awareness of those anonymous structures, thus the andre the giant sticker becomes concave graffiti, a portal inward, highlighting the surface on which it is stuck. combined with a montage and quirky electro-music, this is quite effective. while nothing about this film is serious, the artist and filmmaker are not ironic or sarcastic either. street culture enthusiasts will be pleased.
