Quotes

As himself: You get a kid, and you bust him in his school for graffiti; and you think you got him in trouble. When actuality what you just did was made him a hero in front of his peers. Now he's big time; now he's hardcore; you add validity to him.

Finally had my mind blown!!
30 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this film so much, I show everyone I meet who knows anything about the culture, but you can learn a lot if you've never seen a graff film before or ever wondered what the people running the show were really like. This is not to say that this is the end all be all of graff movies, but it's a really good representation of some of the most INFLUENTIAL individuals still in the game.

Huge props to Pray and Gastman and the cameramen on taking the risk for their own film, I'm sure one or more investigations resulted from the making... Hopefully nothing too severe. It is a big deal for a writer to show their face, people must recognize.

This movie helped me understand more of what I love about graff so much, the HONESTY of the art form above all else.

It goes into daily life with each person not holding much back, esp. the openly PROUD/ strong/black/and homosexual earsnot setting an example to speak your mind, (which more people should follow), the personality traits/flaws of writers (Their egos, their gregariousness, impulses, non apologetic behavior, etc), their artistic motivations (whether it be in evolving their graffiti further, to their fine art to fashion to tattooing to sketching), what its like to live in a rough hood and be stereotyped (LOS ANGELES, NY, etc), dealing with other people's expectations including your peers and your parents)...

For a movie shot in a lot of illegal locations, the cinematography/lighting/technicalities was amazing. It takes BIG BALLS, great amounts of trust I'm sure, and a passion for art to make something like this... can't wait for the next project!
