Critic Reviews for Planet B-Boy
Benson Lee's crackling 2007 video documentary follows five teams as they compete for a world title, with one amazing number after another showcasing the dancers' chorus-line precision, gymnastic athleticism, and thematic novelty.
If Benson Lee's intention with Planet B-Boy was to set the record straight on the continuing story of break dancers, then his documentary has to be counted a success. With a few caveats.
What's fun about Benson Lee's documentary Planet B-Boy isn't just the amazingly athletic displays of B-boys he puts on screen, but the film's sense of cultural discovery.
If I could, I would spin on my head to express how much I enjoyed Planet B-Boy.
The seemingly endless performances can be a bit much, but Lee's sensitivity to the need of these dancers to say something about themselves through dazzling moves is memorable.
Audience Reviews for Planet B-Boy
Without an interest in break dancing either then or during it's comeback, I found this one difficult to sit through. Boring as hell.
Great documentary that introduces us into the world of break-dancing in various countries.
"Breakdancing has evolved" Jumping continents and crossing cultures, "Planet B-Boy" looks at the history of breakdancing and its vibrant resurgence in urban cultures around the world.
