I watched the viewing of the premier of the final cut at the U of I Bijou theater. Even though I didn't grow up as a skateboarder, I can really appreciate the effort it takes to be great in it, and Danny Way pushed the sport to ever higher levels. This was easily the best movie I've seen in quite some time. Note that this is a documentary, so it probably won't do well in the general theaters, as the box office hits tend to be molded for the LCD of the US population. Regardless, everyone who enjoys great stories should check this out. Excellent movie, very well written and directed. I'd definitely watch it again. Line 8. Line 9. Line 10.
