Feature-length made-for-TV film about a boy uncovering the mystery of his father’s death and the search for his own identity as a talented skateboarder. Directed by Corey Adams. Adams seems to have a niche in this sort of surreal skate comedy thing, but it seems pretty derivative (Wes Anderson, Jared Hess) and half-formed. Plus, it was on Fuel TV, which is just horrendous. I don’t know though… It’s funny but I think a lot of the humour would be lost on non-skaters. It’s worth a watch, and it’s a nice step towards a truthful intergration of skateboarding into filmmaking, but that’s it…
