    I don't know if this has been posted yet or not, but I want to know what you think of this movie, not necessarily from the graff perspective, but just if you would go see it. I personally think it looks pretty stupid, but I know mad people who want to check it out.

    I might go, but only if somone else pays for my ticket.

    Dear indie film makers,
    Stop making movies about "the graffiti lifestyle", it's tacky and it lives up to the euphanism of being "gayer than 9 guys fucking 10 guys."

    I know, it might seem like a good idea. You want to film something rebellious. You want to be rebellious. Trust me though, it's never a good idea. Never, ever, ever...... ever.

    Anyone with half a fucking brain.

    Agreed, the only good graffiti movies are the ones......with graffiti, not multilevel relationships between the characters that end up in handjobs (i.e. that other movie, i forgot what its called)

    This is the one made about the lives of two SF graffiti writers, correct?

    key word: "seem"

    People need to realize that graffiti writers have boring, mundane lives just like everybody else. This is like making a movie about a crew of accountants.

    honestly, from a movie standpoint the filim looks like its actually going to be fairly solid. and even content wise it seems pretty legit compared to the all the other "graff" movies. BUT i doubt they will be able to pull it off without it being cheezy and horifically over-dramatized. I'd like to check it out eventually though. and hopefully the character gets fucked in the end, something like the ending of trainspotting or requiem for a dream that way when people see it they wont go around trying to be "cool" and write on stuff. just my 2 cents...

    On myspace these guys are featured on some sort of indie filmmaker advertisement.

    i went to the premiere of this in SF while i was there over the summer. its actually a decent movie even if you dont pay attention to the graffiti aspect. id see it again if the opportunity presented itself. the end is extremely cheezy though. and one thing that bothers me about graffiti movies is wherever they rack from its always montana or belton, i wish there were shops like that in real life.

    I met one of the guys involved in this, and I don't think he would get involved with anything too corny.

    But, I agree with the sentiment that movies about art are rarely what I expect them to be.

    In all fairness, I haven't seen this yet (see above).
