Storyline

SKINHEAD ATTITUDE is the first documentary which outlines the history of forty years of skinhead movement from its extreme left to its extreme right wings. Starting by asking for the most recent development of the movement, the film describes the transformation and radicalisation of this subculture of youth. From London to Berlin, via Helsingborg, Dallas, Las Vegas to Montréal, skinheads establish themselves as a movement of youth with rebellious, violent, often extremist traits. Skins stir up fears and form the street movement which is feared most. They are used to being objects of the media but who are they really? SKINHEAD ATTITUDE is a road movie accompanying Karole, a modern skinhead girl with a traditional and anti-racist attitude. At the age of 22 she discovers her female identity within a male-dominated movement, being skin despite the influential stereotypes and the looks of others. The film is a musical journey which, by following Karole and her companions, draws a portrait ...

Texas Rednecks
16 September 2004 | by geezer74See all my reviews

I just saw SKINHEAD ATTITUDE on video, and I think his excellent. Nice ska music with interviews of Jimmy Pursey from 'Sham 69' or ska legend Laurel Aitken, just to name a few. The movie shows the difference between the traditional, anti racist skins, like they were in the beginning of the late 60's and the fascist white-power skinheads.

I just got a little bit angry that they had to show a bunch of cousin married, white-trash, racist Texan rednecks. If you look at them they have absolutely nothing to do with the skinhead cult. They're not even dressed like skinheads. Just some mad, white power scum.

p.s. the girl (a 22 year old skingirl from France called Karole) who travels with the film maker around the world, is really cute!
