Lords of Dogtown

( 3 )

Overview

The true story of the kids who created modern skateboard culture is recreated in this drama. In the early '70s, skateboards were seen as a fad of the 1960s that had all but died out, but in a rough-and-tumble Venice, CA community known as "Dogtown," that was about to change.

Overview

The true story of the kids who created modern skateboard culture is recreated in this drama. In the early '70s, skateboards were seen as a fad of the 1960s that had all but died out, but in a rough-and-tumble Venice, CA community known as "Dogtown," that was about to change. Tony Alva Victor Rasuk, Stacy Peralta John Robinson, and Jay Adams Emile Hirsch were three guys who liked to surf the rugged beaches around Venice and hung out at the Zephyr Surf Shop, a store run by Skip Engblom Heath Ledger that stocked gear for adventurous surfers and skateboarders. With the advent of new urethane wheels that connected with concrete in a way old metal and rubber wheels could not, Tony, Stacy, and Jay began exploring ways to translate radical surf style to skateboarding, and the guys invented a new way to skate inside the smooth, round surfaces of empty pools, employing vertical moves and edge flips that added a new and dramatic spin to skating. It didn't take long for word to spread about the wild new style of the Z-Boys, and they quickly became local celebrities, and later nationwide skating stars, though sudden fame took its toll on these young men. The true story of Lords of Dogtown was previously the basis of the acclaimed documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, directed by former Z-Boy Stacy Peralta, who like Tony Alva served as a consultant on this project.

    great companion to "Dogtown & Z-Boys"

    Dramatised version of the excellent skateboard documentary, "Dogtown & Z Boys." Fleshes out the bare bones of the documentary with some artistic license, (where is Jeff Ho?). Emile Hirsch is a revelation as Jay Adams. Ironically, the only false performance comes from Heath Ledger. His portrayal of Skip Engblom is distracting at best. Still, this movie is a triumph.
