Lords Of Dogtown

Anyone who grew up in Southern California will talk with both nostalgia and frustration about the periodic summers of drought in which the oppressive heat is exacerbated by a shortage of its antidote fresh water. In 1975, a clan of scruffy, rebellious teens found a way to turn this dearth to their advantage, using the sloping bowl of empty suburban swimming pools to create a new underground sport skateboarding.

The development, explosion, and corporate co-opting of this now ubiquitous sport was the subject of Stacy Peralta's acclaimed 2002 documentary, ‘Dogtown And Z-Boys’. Peralta, one of the original skaters who came to be known as the Z-Boys, has penned this dramatised account of his own story, a kinetic and gripping tale with dramatic turns reflective of the extreme crests and falls of those concrete waves.

Critic Reviews:

  • " The feelings, emotions, language, every nuance and every frame comes alive with astonishing authenticity. " – Matthew Lucas
  • " You don't have to care much about skateboarding (I really don't) to find the movie exhilarating and engaging. " – Rob Gonsalves
  • " The three leads are superb, with Hirsch probably the stand-out – he and Rasuk do particularly well to suggest more than the script's rather one-note characterization allows. " – Matthew Turner
