This DVD gives you an inside look at these fascinating individuals and how their art took in each others influences and moved from the streets into galleries into commercial agencies and back.
It was an inspiring look at how 'creatives' are made. The discussion of just making stuff for your friends, having street art encapsulate the sacrifices and hopes of each attempt was a much more realistic way to think about nurturing artists. Attitude that rules art reviews and the popular press today. These really were just kids who never stopped painting/making movies/etc. and mastered their crafts.
As documentaries go, this one had fantastic footage of the artists across their evolution. The tribute to Margaret Kilgallen was especially touching. The unique relationships between the artists which seemed to be at the core of what made them special. You get a sense that this community had fantastic chemistry that really brought out the best and created a chain reaction which added to the skater culture.
Insight into the lives of the people that make the industry what it is.
