Great History Lesson in Graff
17 January 2011 | by (Grand Junction, Colorado) – See all my reviews

I was pretty surprised that I just happened to find this movie at Hastings & had never heard of it & then realized it is a really legit history of Graffiti (Much like the classics Style Wars & Wild Style from the 80's). I was thrilled to see some interviews with actual legends, the founding fathers of Graff such as Taki 183 & Cornbread! It was really cool to see tagging spread from NYC and go global moving up from bubble & block letters to Wild Style and then giving rise to pieces, murals and the birth of the phenomenon of street art. I also liked the balance in this docudrama, interviews with the police and anti-graffiti advocates right along with the most gutsy & outspoken writers. I really hope this documentary does a lot to reveal the absolute beauty of street art but also discourage straight up vandalism and gang related tagging that is just ugly.
