Zoro, the city's hottest and most elusive graffiti writer. The actual story of the movie concerns the tension between Zoro's passion for his art and his personal life, particularly his strained relationship with fellow artist Rose. But this isn't why one watches Wild Style--this movie is *the* classic hip-hop flick, full of great subway shots, breakdancing, freestyle MCing and rare footage of one of the godfathers of hip-hop, Grandmaster Flash, pulling off an awesome scratch-mix set on a pair of ancient turntables. A must-see for anyone interested in hip-hop music and culture.Written by
I am not into Graffitti in the sense that I spray ... but I am into it in the sense that some artists in Toronto and in other parts of ontario..are absolutely amazing in their ability to draw or create from scratch. I do not condone the destroying of public property in order to show graffitti...and so I do wish that there was a way that these artists could turn their talent into something much more positive that the general public would like just as much as I like their creations. Maybe...what I can do to help is to just start by recommending this film to anyone who doesn't really know that much about the graffitti scene.
