No offense to the kids in this movie...
19 May 2013 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

A poetic documentary about Christian skateboard enthusiasts in small town California. Frankly, the subject matter isn't very interesting. These kids are no less vapid than any other kids, although some of their dramas, particularly the economic woes of Skye Elmore and her family, are touching. Still, the most common subject of the kids' conversations are who's going out with whom, who broke up with whom, blah blah blah. The one thing that makes this film at least somewhat worth watching (and at just over an hour, it's hardly a chore) is the cinematography. Mims and Tippet really capture some gorgeous images. I'd like to see more from them, whether they stick to documentaries or move to fictional material.
