{     'Style Wars' DVD     }    

In 1982 the entire landscape of New York City was transformed- from the subway tunnels to the streets- by graffiti. 'Style Wars' is a look at a movement that would later be known as one of the most important creative times in recent history for music (rap), dancing (breaking), and art (graffiti). But unlike rap and breakdancing, graffiti is illegal and the debate within 'Style Wars' (from the likes of subway drivers, police, taggers and bombers themselves, and even my man Ed Koch) concerns whether graffiti is art, crime, or a status symbol. The DVD comes with two disks and has about three and a half hours of bonus footage and extras with interviews and galleries from the artists, twenty three minutes of outtakes, and even a thirty minute loop of more than two hundred cars and burners, and that's just a smidgeon of all that's there. The film shows a group of kids that come from diverse backgrounds and risk their balls to bring this art to the streets. It's quite inspirational. I rank this with 'The Freshest Kids - A History of the B-Boy' as one of the most powerful films I've seen about the b-boy movement. Buy this DVD and send a message to The Crazy Legs Preservation Society that we need to see more of him on film. Word is bond.
