Biography, Sport, Drama
"They never thought they'd be famous, but they always thought they'd be friends"
Heath Ledger, John Robinson, Victor Rusak, Emile Hirsch and Johnny Knoxville
The Film following the teens of Dogtown, the most suburb place in Venice, California, who are working their way up the system as skateboarders. Success in the Zephyr Team, the Z-Boys starts their departure from their first manager at Zephyr (Ledger).
Great film, based on the true lifes of Stacy Peralta, Jay Adams and Tony Alva. Just a remarkable story of their rise from thr poor hoods, into wellknow talents.
There are controversy of how much of this movie actually is true, I chose to believe in it fully, I believe if the movie contains some untrue parts it is unrelevant to the story.
As Stacy Peralta is writer for the movie, and previously the documentary "Dogtown and Z-Boys" which came a few years earlier, it is probably correct.
The directing of the film is very cool, with amazing angles with only make you trigged to start skateboarding, even though you know you suck shit. And it really catches a beautiful view of the classic culture of the 70s.
A truely inspiring story which everyone should notice, as they all turn out to be pioneers to the free skate life. True stars.
