TWELVE OUNCE PROPHET

 
Graffiti Verite'

 Los Angeles-based film maker Bob Bryan turns in a nice documentary on LA graffiti, including a segment on Cholo-graff spokesman Chaz Bojorquez. There aren't so many of the LA graff stars highlighted as you might hope, and most of the writers spotlighted have pretty much retired, but it still makes for an interesting film. It's well-produced, which helps, but its still rather obviously put together by a non-writer who really doesn't have his finger on the pulse of what graff is about, and that fact will leave most writers pretty cold. Still, it highlights one of the biggest scenes in graffiti, which otherwise has been rather poorly documented. Still available.
