  1. thelastronaut's rating of the film Style Wars

    The glory that is New York City! Was the graffiti on the subway cars artistic expression? An eyesore? A crime? Or was it a visual and colorful reminder that there will always be rule breakers? Maybe it is that, society's demand for conformity, that was the ultimate reason this era ended. Who knows. As Mayor Koch says, "Time will tell."

  3. Chichago_'s rating of the film Style Wars

    I've read about this phenomenon in "The Tipping Point" by Malcolm Gladwell before; and the story told in that book comes from the New York City government's point of view. However, this film has shown me a new perspective of New York's hip-hop and graffiti culture in the 80s. It is interesting to see both sides of the story.

  4. Jason's rating of the film Style Wars

    An exemplary capsule about community - the individual voice collectively deployed. Bonds and fractures. Difficult, saintly commingling. The counterculture has always remained about popular things.

  5. dschank's rating of the film Style Wars

    amazing! beautifully staged (though unpretentious). spirited but open-ended. creates a genuine dialogue about public space, and introduces me to a lot of great art in the process.
