Movie Info

The colorful obsession of six of America's most prolific graffiti artists tags the screen as filmmaker Doug Pray teams with graffiti guru Roger Gastman to explore the work of legendary street artists Claw Saber, Toomer, Enem, and Earsnot. These are the people who risk it all to leave their mark on society in the most visible way possible, and from the Mexican border to the Hollywood streets and the South Bronx, Pray and Gastman offer a meditation on a controversial art form that seeks not to praise or condemn it, but simply bring it to the viewer so that they may witness it firsthand and form their own opinion. An additional trip to the streets with notorious "buffer" Joe "The Graffiti Guerilla" Connolly offers an opposing viewpoint as seen through the eyes of a man who spends his days relentlessly painting out the street art left by the tenacious graffiti artists.more

Audience Reviews for Infamy

½

I've watched this film maybe a dozen times now. It follows a day-in-the-life of some of the more well known 'graffiti writers'. It will take you into NYC, Cali, Philly, and more. Interviewing writers like Saber, Claw, Toomer, Enem, Earsnot, and more.

My only problem with this movie is that they don't really get into the grittiness of graffiti. This is more about the art than the bombing. There are many legends missing from the film that are more well known.

Other graffiti films I recommend are: State Ya Name, 5AM, War, Teenagers from Uranus.

Overall: 8.6/10
