Rize (2005)

Have any of you seen it? It's a documentary about that "crunking" dance craze that was popular among African-Americans in South Central Los Angeles. I'm watching it for free on IMBD tv.

They look like they're having seizures but it's a really interesting film. It was surprised to find out it was directed by white fashion photographer David LaChappele, I misread it as Dave Chappelle at first.

And of course Madonna had to steal it and use in her HUNG UP video a year later. Some of the scenes in her video look like it was lifted out of that film.

I see the word [italic] crunking [/italic] and remember the cringeworthy attempt Hayden Pannetierre makes in Bring It On: All Or Nothing šŸ˜„

I believe the female dancer on the cover was in the Hung Up video, OP.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
