David LaChapelle United Kingdom, 2005

Adam GR's rating of the film Rize

I enjoy David LaChapelle as an artist. Almost always controversial, I think his reverence for subjects shines through as fantastical. I like the weird, concise form of this documentary; the hi-res krumping montage at the end seemed to allow victory for a dance team that was "robbed" earlier in the film. The camera gets quite close to characters but remains silent save for style. Trust is evident, I think. Baby Lil C!
