David LaChapelle United Kingdom, 2005

Khary Khalfani's rating of the film Rize

Travel back in time and experience a taste of early 2000's inner city African American culture. Krump dancing harnesses the passion and energy of African dance and packages it into a unique urban trend with explosive potential. The film could have benefited from better structuring, historical context, and explanations. Due to this, the film comes off as a montage of dancing clips rather than a true documentary.
