Aro Recommended Rize

 

 

Aroview: An infectious documentary about a growing dance phenomenon in the United States, dubbed Krumping, which has emerged from the hip-hop movement in Los Angeles to become a unique form of expressive movement, which visually appears like a super-twitchy, high speed version of breakdancing.

Charting the dance form's curious origins in a children's birthday party clown act (!), dir. LaChapelle (also a renowned fashion photographer) choreographs an array of interviews and factoids about the gangland context and friendly rivalry between 'krumper' and 'clowner' factions. However, it is the sequences of the oiled dancers moving with highly-controlled, electrifying speed that provides the astonishing heart of the film.
