Famed photographer David LaChapelle gets behind a different kind of lens for RIZE, his feature film debut. LaChapelle heads to Los Angeles to make his mark in the cinematic world, shooting a documentary about a radical new style of hip-hop dance called "krumping." Dividing his time between the personal lives of the dancers and some spectacular on-screen demonstrations courtesy of the cream of the krumpers, LaChapelle charts the rise of this dance phenomenon.

What the critics are saying:

"Rize is a compelling, bittersweet hybrid of a movie, one celebrating an enormous and hitherto unsung underground talent, while suggesting that art goes only so far in solving the enormous challenges of the underprivileged life."
- Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune

"Eye-popping lensing and an appreciation of social complexities combine for an entirely satisfying experience."
- Robert Koehler, Variety

"A vibrant eruption of motion and attitude."
- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"The most remarkable thing about Rize is that it is real."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

An electrifying documentary about the explosion of "krumping" - a radical new dance style born in the slums of South Central Los Angeles.

Shot! This movie was good. I'm not into the whole hip hop scene, but this movie made me have a deep sense of appreciation for what I have, aswell as a great respect for these people who try to RIZE up out of their sircumstances. The Lords of Dogtown

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
