Intensely up-tempo, hyped-up L.A. dancing form called "clowning" or "krumping" is vividly chronicled in this David LaChappelle documentary. Born from the 1992 riots as a peaceful means of expression by poverty-stricken inner-city dwellers, krumping was the invention of Tom Johnson, or Tommy the Clown, a reformed drug dealer who started the movement by dressing as a clown and, later, reenacting the Rodney King footage. Payoff comes in the form of a grand krumping contest held annually at the Great Western Forum.
