Re: Bones Brigade: An Autobiography documentary skate

#233179 1 year, 7 months ago
Watched it once by myself, and watched it again with my oldest skating cohort. I was disappointed. I felt like I was being sold on something rather than being told about something. A lot of that has to do with how Stacy Peralta came off as really phony. It's been argued that it was his movie about his company, so it is understandable why his interviews looked forced and almost disingenuous. They came off as scripted/acted/not entirely sincere/manipulative, and I don't care if the cause was a conflict of interest and his own confusion. I understand his position in the film, but I don't find it a good reason for someone who isn't an actor, or at least not a very good one, to fake crying and make these goofy gestures.

Mullen makes a lot more sense now. Like that guy even more. Should have given him more interview time (or his own short doc). Philosophical and profound. Clearly a savant of some sort.

I learned a lot. I'm not sorry I watched it twice. Maybe the conflict of interest was enough to make it a lesser doc than the one about Dogtown. The vibe wasn't as pure with this one.
