Flake and flames baby !
8 December 2013 | by dwrenchedSee all my reviews

Flake and Flames is Dirk Behlau and Jasper Bram's custom culture documentary. I've been interested in this project since the very beginning because of how it came advertised. A movie about custom. Culture. Now if you ask me, this ''culture'' is a mix of so many arts... Lowbrow art, choppers, hot rods, customs, low riders, rockabilly, pin up's, photographers... Pause. (catching a breath)

As long as you are digging one of these arts, you are a custom culture freak. Sorry mate. And as long as you support and contribute to the culture in a way, any way, and not just exploit it, you are an active part of the circus.

Flake and Flames is a must have for the real grease and wrench monkey, chopper guy, hot rodder, gear head, rockabilly fan.

Iconic people of the scene, choppers, hot rods, great music; a great time. A great documentary everybody should have. It's a just released-already classic. End of story !
