5.0 out of 5 stars Great graffiti movie. February 7, 2010
By Toshio
Verified Purchase
A must-see for any graffiti fan or writer. Unfortunately, it's out-of-print now, so in order to own it, you might end up paying more than it's actually worth. Too bad, because it comes with a supplementary booklet (about 40 pages) featuring interviews with writers featured in the film, photos, as well as director's and narrator's statements. The DVD alone is filled with about 2 hours of bonus painting footage and interviews, including a 30-minute slideshow set to music used in the film. It's also worth noting that it doesn't come in a half-baked, generic plastic case. It comes in considerably well-designed paper casing, covered in nicely stylized artwork featuring crew and artist tags. Unfortunately, given the price you might end up paying for it today, I could only suggest buying it to those who love buying things at outrageously high prices or those who can afford it.

I got the last used one that was under 20 dollars. I had seen the movie on Netflix a year back and it's what made me wanna be a writer. If you love this movie and find it going for a reasonable price, take it. Only if it comes with complete case and booklet, of course. Otherwise you're better off watching it on YouTube or getting it off Netflix. HAHA! No, seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bay area memories. April 9, 2007
Verified Purchase
Man this video is sick. I am from the midwest and went out to San Fran in the late 90's for a trip. I met a bunch of writers that are featured in this video so it was really nuts to see a bunch of pieces I have pictures of in the movie.

Anyway if you are into writing or have hooks into the Bay Area art scene then this movie is definitely for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars February 11, 2008
The trailer for this movie really got me pumped. But i was honestly dissapointed once the movie began. cheesey narrarator on a low budget.

Luckily, what saved this movie and made it worth buying..... was the fact that theres is alot of history in this documentary. He was able to gather pics and videos from when it all began in SF, all the way upto date. The special features was acually my favorite part. Lots of bombing.

Like i said, im not sure what i was expecting, but i was indeed expecting more out of the acual production of the film.

What makes this movie worth buying is the acual raw info.
if you care to know how SF came up, this movie is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting December 2, 2012
By KenG

I watched this movie when I was in college years ago and decided to check it out again. Pretty cool stuff. The film is definitely biased in favor of graffiti and focuses only on San Francisco. It is kind of a shame most of the work is gone, but a stroll around the city always yields some new notable works and the all-to-prevalent tags which we all frown upon. This is a great film to watch once or twice if you're ever curious or happen to be living in or visiting the city.
