An interesting film on graffiti and the culture behind it, 3 April 2005
Author: empireofnothing from United States

This documentary focuses on the graffiti art scene in San Francisco and the colorful characters that have been active and influential in expanding this controversial, and for the most part, illegal art form. The film does a good job of covering many different facets to graffiti and its diverse styles and purposes. The foundational reason for engaging in such an illegal and temporary expression of art, considering that 90% of the works featured in the film are now gone, is to simply put up your mark for self-fulfillment and in many cases to inspire other graffiti artists and people that will see their work. Throughout the film it is also made clear that most of the people that engage in something that is usually considered vandalism actually love their city, and is one of the very reasons they do it.
