Image from the film Wildstyle
With its ad-libbed dialogue, cast of non-actors, and thin plotline, Wild Style is more a documentary than a feature film. Set in the urban decay of early-1980s New York City, the film ostensibly follows the early career of Zoro, a young graffiti artist. But its primary purpose is to offer authentic, virtuosic displays of the four original art forms of hip-hop culture, culminating in an extended concert scene that features some of hip-hop’s legendary performers. Contains strong language. (HD)
