    Simultaneously hilarious and deeply informative thanks to the vibrant personalities at its center.

    Among the film's highlights are an interview with Grand Wizard Theodore, who is generally uncontested in his claim to have invented the idea of scratching vinyl.
  3. Highly entertaining and encouraging documentary.
  4. Scratch will make even the uninitiated believe in the joy and propulsive power of hip-hop.
  5. 89
    So upbeat it might as well arrive on a sunbeam.
  6. The miracle here is not so much that Pray captures the DJs in peak form, but that he comprehensively captures SO MANY of them.
