Doug Pray's "Infamy"

Since the landmark documentary on graffiti culture, Style Wars, there hasn't been as fresh and as salient a work, exploring the mysterious world of graffiti writers. Bringing the same level of intelligence and keen investigative eye of that first great graffiti film, Doug Pray, the acclaimed director of the hip-hop turntablism documentary Scratch, offers what may be the first answer to Style Wars to be seen, in the twenty three years following that definitive documentary's first airing on PBS. Aptly titled Infamy, the Pray "doc" may just be the long overdue filler of a gaping graffiti documentary vacuum. Exploring the culture through the lens of several compelling writers, Infamy gets into the nooks and crannies and into the "why?" of bombing that most outsiders fail to ask or know about.

The Squid and The Whale

Relationships. They're our greatest universal challenge, other than survival. And most would say that you need good relationships to achieve survival. If that's true, then why are we so bad at them? Communication, that's why. In select theatres and on DVD now, The Squid and the Whale is a funny, honest, nuanced look, at just this issue and the lack of it in a relationship. Set in 1980's New York and examining the breakdown of a marriage between writers, the film rings true with all of the interpersonal dynamics and issues that develop between two people in a dissolving marriage, with the added flair of writers' language, and two children who are old enough to fully grapple with the gravity of the situation and their own growing up.
