Not only does this film sum up the creativity of working class youth culture in New York in the 70's/early 80's but it also captures other aspects like passion, determination, character, heart, humour, etc.
The watching experience draws you in, to a point where all your childhood memories come flooding back and you can almost see yourself in certian characters in the movie!
Even though I'm a huge fan of the hole'Hip-Hop'culture myself, you dont even have to be to enjoy this classic piece of footage!, if you are then you'll appreciate it a whole lot more!
The film is a joy to watch from start to finish, it features all of NYC's famous writers from Seen to Shy147, from Blade to Dondi, also captures rare footage of the Rock Steady Crew battling Dynamic Rockers, and the interviews, graf gallerys are great additions to the DVD.
Full marks to Tony Silver, Henry Chalfant and Marther Cooper for making this film.
This is Real Hip-Hop!!!!
