Screening Room: ‘We Are Your Friends’

Zac Efron feels the beat (Warner Bros.)
It’s been about 40 or so years since DJ Kool Herc started spinning in the Bronx, but every few years the culture wakes up to the idea that, Hey, this DJing thing might be its own kind of creative expression.

My review of We Are Your Friends, which opens this week, is at Film Journal.

The trailer is here; dance on:
