The Other Chapelle

Seeing news of this J-Lo music video (of which I am skeptical) reminded me of David LaChapelle’s Rize, the amazing documentary about clowning and krump dancing.  Here’s the trailer:

Everyone should see it, and not just for the ridiculously fast body movements and pretty shots (which come together best during the night dances at the Watts Towers).  The movie says a lot about challenges and successes of the Los Angeles black community post-1992 riots and demonstrates oppression again becoming a catalyst for art.

Fascinating.  Beautiful.  Worth watching thrice…

  • Dear AppleI’m very happy that you love this music.SCHINDLER’S LIST is such a long movie, I had to watch it in two days. There’re too much outstanding tnighs that I could tell. The scene impressed me mostly is when those jews saved by Schindler walked forward the screen turns into colorized; Time went to today, and they and their descendants put a stone on Schindler’s grave one by one to memorialize him.Thanks for recommend THE ENGLISH PATIENT, TAXI DRIVER and FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, I haven’t watched them before and I’m interested in them. I appreciate that you have watched so much great movie.Rock on!
