How does it compare to similar movies, like Paris Is Burning, and does it build its characters effectively enough? In this respect, Chris sees it as maybe more valuable as a document than a documentary. Finally, in light of both Banksy’s recent visit and the larger change in how New York presents public spaces since the 1980s, we discuss how Style Wars is still relevant in 21st century Gotham.
Also included: Dan gives a brief preview of DOC NYC, which kicks off this weekend. And Chris tells us a bit about his own graffiti documentary, which if we cross our fingers we might get to see some day.
