07.13.12Netflix Documentary about some famous skateboard guy Gator who ended up going to jail for murder. I can only guess that this movie exists because of Dogtown + Z-Boys or maybe it's a happy coincidence that it was so popular right before this or whatever. In any case, I'd never heard of it until it was mentioned on The Film Vault podcast and I guess I was interested enough to enqueue it.

It's a pretty good doc. I feel like it's very similar to every other rise-and-fall story but the details of the crime are pretty chilling and the 80s atmosphere stuff in the background of all the impressive amount of footage put together is also interesting. I enjoyed the parts where it talked more about the skateboard industry as a whole as compared to this guy Gator so the middle was my favorite part.

Not bad.
