Wild Style

Everytime I watch this, I seem to find something new. I was showing this DVD off to some friends who'd never seen it, and couldn't believe their eyes. While it's a ultra low-budget, terribly acted, nonsense of a storyline. The actual players of the early days of Hip Hop actually play themselves in this. Fab 5 Freddy plays himself as an opportunistic scenester, while Lee 163d plays the lead role as a rough around the edges young graffiti artist.

Also, the portrayal of the Downtown hipster art scene is hilarious and totally accurate. Look for cameos by Chris Stein, Biz Markie and Mr. Magic.
