Bomb It Opens April 25 in NY: Review

In preparation for our long awaited theatrical run in NYC at the Cinema Village from April 25th- May 1st, 2008 we got a glowing review. Check it out:

It’s quite a beautiful crime,” says Swedish graffiti artist Pike, sitting on a derelict couch sipping a beer next to his hooded partner Nug.

While the various subjects describe graffiti in many different ways (“Graffiti is energy,” “Art is a weapon”), they’re bound together by a commitment to an art form that is confrontational in its very nature, a quality which has contributed to the medium’s remarkable popularity—as one graf writer says, “This is the biggest art movement in the history of humankind. It’s bigger than the Renaissance because of the sheer numbers alone.”
