    i saw this recently...i thought it was well done, the way it's shot makes nyc look like an alien landscape...it's by Manny Kirchhmeier and has music by Charles Mingus.
    i don't know too much about films but it's something i would like to start seeing more. drop science...

    I was just thinking about this movie yesterday, and was wishing I had bought it when I spotted it on Ebay a while back. It sounds like one of the best and earliest graffiti videos out. I am definately interested in checking it out.

    it's shot in a way that when you see the whole cars rolling every now and then it's as if you are right then and there back in 1980 with the kids watching subways roll on a lazy afternoon...

    I first saw this film when I worked at Tower Video back in 1990. It came in as a rental and I took it home as a gift. I watch it often. And still to this day graffiti is summed up in one scene in that movie. When the kids are watching the cars go by at top speed. There's a scene where the camera is fixed on one of the kids eyes. And how fast his eyes are moving to catch every little piece of information and inspiration. The dedication of seeing it all. Maybe even catching a glimpse of his own work. It almost gives me chills...

    Anyone know if this film can be found outside the U.S? I need a PAL version but I'm having trouble finding it anywhere
