Critic Reviews for Bomb It
A remarkably compact and engaging overview of the history and ideology of this urban outlaw art form.
Genuinely global, multicultural, and multilingual in its urban perspectives.
Jon Reiss' high-energy doc hops all across the globe in order to paint the fullest portrait of the most modern art.
What distinguishes Jon Reiss's lively, sure-handed film from the rest is that it widens the spectrum by taking a comprehensively international viewpoint.
The subject is never less than fascinating, though the film's repetitive format and reiteration of the same points ad infinitum will wear you down before the paint can dry.
Bomb It's uncritical survey of world graffiti culture nods to history and cave art, then basically repeats itself.
Audience Reviews for Bomb It
Documentary about graffiti artists and their motivation, why they do what they do. Rather than just show New York, this one goes across the world, covering different pieces and different artists in Toykyo, Sao Paulo, Cape Town, Hamburg, London and shows how the different cultures and different cities influence their work.. Fascinating, entertaining and reasonably even handed view of the origins, development and politics of graffiti, and some beautiful art too, though I guess that depends on your personal view - is it artistic expression or unfettered vandallism? Included are some telling shots of giant billboards to make you ponder over the acceptability of mass corporate advertising in cities, when throwing up a colourful tag can get you arrested.
