| Not a movie in the conventional way - but a unique snapshot of a moment in time that changed the musical world
If you want a movie with a plot and a story, this isn't for you. If you want to see the founding fathers of a musical movement which changed the world, this is it. It's the real deal - the artists play themselves, and there are extensive breaks showing all that was wonderful about rap, graffiti and break-dancing in NYC in the early 80's. I was lucky enough to live there at the time, and I will never forget the amazement of seeing full-painted subway cars, and hearing the unique beats of Red Alert and his kind on Kiss and WBLS. This movie captures a wonderful moment in time.It was the best of times, it was ... the best of times. I have no idea where all these people are now, but if you ever read this - thanks - you changed my life.
