Quotes

Zack Mulligan: Your whole life society tells you, like 'oh, be a man, and you are strong and you are tough and margaritas are gay' you know, like. You know. You don't grow up thinking that's the way you are. When you're a kid, you just do, you just act and then somewhere along the line, everyone loses that.

Experiencing others pain
17 April 2019 | by marc_baker1See all my reviews

I'm not a skateboarder, did not grow up under difficult circumstances, have a father I am proud of and feel I've done ok as a father myself.

There should be no reason for me to connect with this film. Yet I did in a very strong way. Mr. Liu showed me his subjects' pain and did it in such an honest way. As he says to his friend, Kiere, at one point - I see myself in your story. He is just exploring and trying to find an answer to his own pain through the mediums he knows - skateboarding and filmmaking.

The third act climax for each subject is painful and heart wrenching. I'm thankful that Mr. Liu shared this with us.
