Beat Street Regie Stan Lathan


Though Beat Street operates in a fairly pat emotional register, there is one sliver of genuine visual poetry: when Ramon’s casket is driven away, the camera tilts up and pans right, simultaneously matching the hearse’s exit from the lower portion of the frame with a graffiti-strewn subway train barreling across an overhead bridge. Where is his spirit, this composition seems to ask: in the hearse, or splayed across the side of the train?
