Editorial Reviews

Take an intense journey into the dangerous lives and obsessed minds of six of America's most prolific graffiti artists. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Doug Pray (Hype! and Scratch) who teamed up with writer, publisher, and graffiti guru Roger Gastman, the movie takes you deep into the world of street legends Saber, Toomer, Jase, Claw, Earsnot and Enem. With brutal honesty, humor and charisma, these artists reveal why they are so willing to risk everything to spray paint their cities with "tags," "throwups" and full-color murals. You'll also meet Joe "The Graffiti Guerilla" Connolly, a notorious "buffer" who paints out graffiti on his neighborhood's walls with a vengeance matched only by those who vandalized them. From the streets of the South Bronx to the solitude of a San Francisco tunnel, from high atop a Hollywood billboard to North Philadelphia for a lesson in "Philly-style tags," from the Mexican border to a Cleveland train yard, Infamy doesn't analyze or glorify graffiti... it takes you there and brings it to life.

Format: DVD
I have recently become impressed with Doug Pray's documentary work. Infamy is about the graffiti sub-culture. He follows 5 or 6 of the more prolific taggers to see how they work and listen to their thoughts. It really gave me insight into why these guys (and girls) have a passion for their particular brand of art. He also includes one "buffer", which is a guy who eliminates graffiti in his neighborhood. The buffer was pretty funny because his last scene essentially shows that he is really a form of tagger!

There is some good footage of the artists actually creating their work with markers or spray paint. It really drew a striking parallel with calligraphy. Their motions are often so practiced and smooth that the movements seem to be as much art as the final result. Of course there are also shots of many beautiful works in the film. If you have any interest in the graffiti scene, check out this film.

Like most of Doug Pray's films (Scratch, Surfwise, Big Rig), he takes a subculture that has strong negative connotations and puts a human face to it. Like most people, I have had mixed feeling about graffiti. I've seen some amazing murals by graf artists, but the signature scrawls you see everywhere tend to piss me off. But after I saw this film, at least now I look at it in a different way. Great stuff. I will never look at graffiti the same way again.

For all graf heads (especially) and even those that turn their nose at graffiti but have any appreciation for art/street culture and self expression, you need to check this film out. It's fantastic! Doug Pray (director and maker of SCRATCH) made this film because even though he was never a fan of graffiti, and even had a distaste for a lot if, he was curious to find out what it was all about. And he did...and the point of view from which he shot this film is exactly why it's so good! It's not a typical documentary where you'd expect the filmmaker to simply glamorize or demean graffiti, just give you the history of the art form, or tryto convince you that graffiti is this way or that way...it's a raw look into the lives of 7 people who lives revolve around the art form (with MANY artist and icon cameos throughout), and it gives you tremendous insight into what it really means to live and breath whatever it is your true passion may be. In this film , it happens to be graffiti. So, check it out! I doubt you'll be disappointed. And don't expect another SCRATCH...this film is a totally different kind of film.

This dvd shows some of the biggest names in graffiti art. The dvd gets the opinion of each graffiti artist and a guy who tries to get rid of tagging in his city. This is a good dvd I just didn't like the atittude of most of the graffiti artists because they make it seem like in order to make it big you have to go through them first and that you must go through tough times to be respected. These aren't the BEST graff. artist they are just well known or over rated. Entertaining film but don't assume that graffiti is what they say it is, they have their own opinions. These graff artists act like they know everything and it gets annoying but what makes this a good film is the images you see and their passion for it.

This is crap, absolutely garbage. It is a film about graffiti and it has DRM protection. I wanted to encode the video so that I can watch it on my plex media server, but out of the box handbrake doesn't work and neither does imgburn. Both are complaining about protections on the disc. I'd return this film if it wouldn't cost me more to ship it back to amazon than I already paid.

Buzz off with your crap DRM. It is giving legitimate product holders more trouble than it is worth. Do you honestly think you lost money off this film about graffiti to piracy?

I have to say I am not that into graffiti but this is a great DVD. It goes on to show you the life of the artists and why they do what they do. Some may say that graffiti is horrid looking and some yes it is but when they put up a whole wall of great art it is amazing.

This DVD goes and shows you some of the biggest names in graffiti and where they come from. There are quite a bit more out there but this one is my favorites a must buy.

I saw this film for the first time In 2008. It is by far the most accurate and emotional graffiti documentary I've seen, and I've seen just about all of them. Definitely a must-see film for anyone interested, involved in, dedicated to, or against the art. Will really change your opinions on graffiti just being a whole lot of destructive trash. I never write reviews, but this film deserves it.
