Rize

Genre: Documentary; Starring: Tommy the Clown; Director: David LaChapelle; Runtime (in minutes): 85; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Lions Gate Films

In David LaChapelle’s documentary, the lean young Los Angeles krump dancers work their bodies into a state of hectic gyrating motion; it’s dancing as cathartic seizure, as fantasy of retaliatory power. You can forgive the movie for being disorganized and too skimpy on street-dance history.
