"What this film does—and does so brilliantly—is document the world of hip-hop before most people even knew what hip-hop was. To that end, Wild Style has more in common with French cinema verite and Italian neo-realism than the exploitation flicks screening in Times Square that it was trying to emulate." - David Walker, BadAzz MoFo
A gem from the earliest days of hip-hop and street art. Not only does this film showcase some truly incredible artists and performers, it also blends the line between documentary and fiction. Christian Metz has said that every film is fiction but perhaps the opposite is also true.
