Synopsis

Shot between 1981 and 1983 and aired on PBS, Style Wars is remarkable as a relatively early filmed document of hip-hop culture at its source and an intelligent defense of an oft-maligned and misunderstood art form, graffiti.

Style Wars Regissert av Tony Silver

Anmeldelser fra kritikere

Like Jennie Livingstone’s study of the drag ball scene Paris Is Burning (1990), Style Wars is a rare example of a formally interesting documentary which somehow manages to capture the texture and entire arc of a subculture. One thrilling sequence sets a rapid montage of SEEN’s vibrant, large-scale train art to the rollicking swagger of Dion’s 1961 rock n’ roll hit “The Wanderer”, effectively melding an aural signifier of one generation’s subculture with the visual of the next.
