We are thrilled that Film Threat gave us a great review and 4 stars!
"It’s fitting that the film feels much like an evening out tagging a wall, with its rapid fire delivery that, when you take a moment to step back and appreciate, truly shines. Again, this isn’t about slowly wading yourself into graffiti and street art culture, this is diving right in."
We are super excited that we got a great review and Critic’s Pick in the NY Times!
“The movie also considers that bombing (the term of choice for graffiti painters), once deemed a subversive act, has inevitably been co-opted over the last decade or so, its influences turning up in video games and marketing campaigns, and the work itself mounted on gallery walls. But if the artists shown here making magic with spray paint are any indication, graffiti will never go out of style. It will continue to move with the times; with luck, the filmmakers there to document it will do it the justice that this one does. ”

WIRED just listed Bomb It in it’s Playlist section of the 5.16 issue.
The Bronx subway “bombers” of the ’70s had no idea they’d inspire an international movement, but overseas taggers took the spray paint and ran with it. In this graffiti doc, due in theaters and on DVD in May, Blek Le Rat stencils rodents along Parisian curbs; São Paulo artist Zezao “fat-caps” surreal mindscapes onto sewage tunnels; and Tokyo mom Belx2 splatters walls with little girl pictograms.
