Bomb It! Takes you on a trip around the world through a can of paint.
I am so impressed with where this movie goes literally and metaphorically. I loved the animation used at the beginning and how it's sprinkled throughout, it worked perfectly! Congratulations Jon should be really proud of it. Plus it says so much about the world and the state it's in, you really get this feeling that Graffiti is a desperate act to communicate! The movie works on so many levels. It is pretty awe inspiring in it's scope, discussing graffiti from around the world, questioning art, questioning what makes a space public. I came away with the feeling that all graffiti artists all over world do it for basically the same reason and because of this it feels like a universal language, that the whole world is suffering from the same disease and these artists are reaching out through places that are seen by everyone.
The movie is a gift , I hope a lot of people see it because they should!
