Style Wars

Viewed: 23 May 2003

This documentary on the early beginnings of hip-hop focuses on the very beginning with the tagging and eventual bombing of subway cars. Style Wars traces subway graffiti from the early 1970ís with Taki 147 and Eva 62 to its high point with fully bombed cars, to its demise after the MTA installing high fences and guard dogs around its yards, and as a final insult, painted all the cars white. I was able to see style wars on the two disk 20th anniversary DVD, the second disk allowing a view into the characters lives as they are now. Most seem to be involved somehow with graffiti still today. Style Wars made me wish I was ten years older, so I could have seen the subways fully covered to the extreme.
