|10.13.06||Internet|| Doug Pray continues to make hip, interesting, well-constructed films that don't get any sort of distribution or media attention at all. What's up with that? |
Infamy explores the world of graffiti writing, interviewing a handful of (assumedly) well-known artists and talking about both the practice and lifestyle of the craft. You get a glimpse of different styles across cities like NYC, Philly, San Francisco, and LA, different writers' personalities, and common threads that connect the "element" together.
What's great is that Pray manages to both show the beauty and meaning behind the artwork and also the sense of danger that goes with writing and vague moral/legal mindsets that all these guys live in. It's all really well told and Z-Trip helps out with some music.
Top notch doc.
