Wild Style

In a world a long, long ago, there was Wild Style, the film that can be legitimately called the first hip-hop film ever made.

The low budget musical docu-drama film, which revolves around the life of a New York City graffiti artist, played by real life graffiti artist Lee Quinones, as he deals with his life, his work and his relationship with a fellow artist Rose (Sandra Fabara), and featuring performances by Grandmaster Flash, Fab Five Freddy, Rock Steady Crew and Cold Crush Brothers, can rightly claim to be one of the very few films ever made that had a ground breaking cultural impact.

The film’s success led to other similar films, such as Style Wars and Michael Schultz’s Krush Groove with Run DMC, Sheila E and New Edition.

And even, unfortunately, Cannon Film’s Breakin and Breakin 2 with Boogaloo Shrimp and Shabba Doo.

But let’s not go there, but instead tell you that Music Box Films, on October 1st, will release a special 30th anniversary collector’s edition DVD of Wild Style, which will include a newly-remastered version of the film, and a collection of new and never-before-seen bonus materials, plus a 48-page booklet written by the director Charlie Ahearn.

Aside from the feature length commentary by Ahearn and Fab Five Freddy, the DVD set will also include 7 featurettes about the film, and 7 interviews as well, including a new one with Quinones.

The film will also be released on the same date on all digital platforms.

Here’s a trailer from the film’s original release:
