Yesterday, fledgling filmmaker Noe Medrano posted to the YouTubes a nine-minute cut of his documentary Artist Unknown, about Dallas' graffiti culture. Noe and P.J. Medrano's doc is worth a look -- and a longer version, which I hope is forthcoming. This cut debuted at the University of Texas at Arlington fall film fest in '07, and it's as good as any short I've seen elsewhere. And it's especially noteworthy for the scenes in which taggers are seen marking their territory during late-night bombing runs. How often do you see something you've never seen before? --Robert Wilonksy
